All About Me By Hayley Spence


My full name is Hayley Elise Spence and I was born in Walnut

Creek, California. I moved to Pleasanton, Kansas after my sister was born and ended up in Saint Joseph eleven years later. I love being outdoors, whether I’m fishing or hunting or just outside. My cowboy boots are my favorite pair of shoes; I even bought a cowboy hat and a belt to match them. I love country music and rock. It’s about all I listen too. It’s always been my dream to go to the University of Kansas and graduate with a Master’s Degree or a Doctorate in medical science. I hope to get a full-ride scholarship there, and after I graduate I want to live far away from the city, maybe in a small town or just somewhere with wide open spaces, surrounded by the countryside, where it’s peaceful.

Italy’s area is 301.225 square kilometers. It has a Mediterranean climate with cold winters. The capital of Italy is Rome. The population of Italy is 60.6 million. The country of Italy has the fifth-highest population density in Europe. Italy’s main religion is Roman Catholic. They have a Democratic Republic government with three branches of government; executive, legislative, and judicial. The natural resources of Italy are fish and natural gas and the agricultural products of Italy are wheat, rice grapes, olives, potatoes, sugar beets, citrus fruits, soybeans, dairy products, and beef. Italy is ranked as the world’s eighthlargest market economy. Italy is also a member of the European Union.


Venice is located in Northeast Italy, on a group of 118 islands that are separated by canals and linked together by bridges. The city of Venice is supported by wooden beams entrenched in the sea bed. The islands were not sturdy enough to support buildings. The Italian city is made up of 118 islands, 170 bell towers, 416 bridges, and 177 canals. Venice holds several festivals every year including The Carnival of Venice, which is held annually in the city; The Venice Film Festival, and The Festa de Redentore, which is a big feast held to give thanks for the end of the plague in 1576. The cuisine in Venice is usually italian seafood with garden products and rice. Transport through the narrow waterways is by Gondolas, symbolic boats of Venice operated by an oarsman called a Gondolier. A famous market in Venice is the Rialto Market. The fish section and the fruit and vegetable section make up the whole market. One key rule in Venice and all of Italy is to never touch the produce. Ask the vendor and he or she will get it for you.

Take a trip to the historical country of Italy, where you will see the Roman Colosseum and many more famous landmarks. The Roman Colosseum stands 159 feet tall, and has eighty entrances. Emperor Vespasian began construction fro the Roman Colosseum in 72 A.D. It was finished in 80 A.D., a year after Emperor Vespasian’s death.



Beaches in Italy are perfect for vacations. They are the most crowded during the months of July and August though, because of tourism. Some of the most famous beaches in Italy are Sicily, Calabria, and the Amalfi Coast. These are the most stunning in all of Italy, with rocky cliffs and sand covering the coast of Calabria, one of the most cleanest beaches in all of Italy. Beaches in Sicily covered with beautiful white sands, and even

The main language spoken in Italy is Italian, with 93% of the population are native Italian speakers. Minority languages spoken in Italy are Ladin, German, Sloven, French, Albanian, Croatian, and Greek. Italians value their family very much. Some Italian families even have extended relatives residing with them. The way you dress in Italy is very important. Your appearance can say many things about you, like your social status, your level of education, and your family’s background. Italians are very fashion conscious. They tend to judge and asses people on their appearance and first impressions. The major religion in Italy is Roman Catholic. Children in Italy are named after patron saints and celebrate their saint’s day like a second birthday to them. There is at least one patron saint associated with every day of the year. Church attendance tends to be very low in Italy, but the church is still a big influence in Italian’s lives. The etiquette for meeting in Italy is friendly but formal. Acquaintances usually shake hands and have direct eye contact between each other. Friends in Italy usually

air kiss on the cheeks, beginning with the left. Italians don’t call each other by a first name unless they are invited to. Calling cards are given to each other at greetings

too. Calling cards are similar to business cards except they state the person’s name, address, title, and their telephone number. When Italians give gifts, they never give red flowers, yellow flowers, or chrysanthemums. Red flowers indicate secrecy, yellow flowers indicate jealousy, and chrysanthemums are used at funerals. Italians also never wrap gifts in purple or black. Black is the color of mourning and the color purple symbolizes bad luck. Gifts given in Italy are usually opened as soon as they are received. The currency used in Italy is the euro. The euro is used in many countries in

Europe, so traveling throughout Europe and Italy is relatively easy.

Bennett Springs By Hayley Spence Bennett Springs. A fisherman’s or woman’s heaven. Multiple areas of fishing loaded with some of the biggest and beautiful trout in the state of Missouri. Canoeing and camping included. There’s even a trout reserve. That’s where the biggest trout are located. No fishing allowed there though; it’s just for looks. Six different camping sites with shower houses and indoor bathrooms. The fourth camping site is the best though; it has the best shower houses and bathrooms. Bennett Springs was the best fishing experience that I’ve had so far.

Not only was Bennett Springs the best fishing experience I’ve ever had, it was also an educational experience. I learned never to step too deep into the water, because it’s not warm. When it seeps into your boots, it’s like spilling a bag of ice onto your feet. I also learned to not be too loud into the late hours of the night. The group I was with stayed up until two o’clock in the morning. We were yelling and talking, trying to be heard over one another, and laughing about the stories told by the campfire. The next day an officer came up to us and told us that there had been complaints about noise, and that if we couldn’t keep it down, we would have to leave.

It was my father, my sister, my step-mother, my aunt Janet, uncle Brian, and cousin Ryan, with my uncle Corey, my aunt Dez, my uncle Larry, Garnett and his wife. We ended up taking up three of the camping sections in campsite two; our group was that big. Everyone arrived there a couple hours before my sister, my dad, and I because my mom had to meet my dad at his work when he got off of his shift. It was a six hour drive, but the time flew by quickly. My step-mom and Dez rode together, while my uncle Corey drove his truck down. By the time we got to Bennett Springs everyone had already set up their tents and campers, and had started a bonfire while they were roasting marshmallows and making smores. My sister and I hurried to put our bags in the tent so we wouldn’t miss out on all the fun.

After putting my bags in the tent I sat in a lawn chair and joined the group around the bonfire. Everyone was telling stories and reminiscing about past trips to Bennett Springs. When I heard the stories, I knew that this was going to be the best fishing trip that I had ever taken. It was around midnight when we were all so stuffed with smores that we decided it was time to go to bed. At least most of us went to bed. My uncle Larry and Garnett decided to stay up until two in the morning, talking and telling each other jokes. It started to rain later that night, and this wasn’t just any storm. We were in a torrential downpour. I woke up in the early hours of the morning with the tent leaking and raindrops hitting me right in the middle of my forehead. The sun hadn’t even come up yet. Our tent wasn’t the worst though. My uncle Larry woke up to his air mattress floating in about a foot of water. Everyone was woke up by the loud splash and yelling from my uncle Larry falling into the water. We all ran to his tent to see what was the matter with him. When we looked inside and him sitting in almost a foot of water and his air mattress floating around the tent, we couldn’t help ourselves; we were laughing to the point where our stomachs hurt. Of course Larry didn’t think it was funny at all considering he woke up by falling off of his air mattress and into the water.

When uncle Larry was all dried off and the rest of us were dressed, we grabbed our fishing poles and headed down to uncle Brian’s and Garnett’s favorite fishing spot. It was my first time purposely fishing for trout so I was pretty excited. I cast my line out and waited, slowly reeling the line back in to try to lure the fish to moving bait. Unfortunately I didn’t catch anything that morning. Everyone started to get pretty hungry so we decided to head back down to the campsite where my aunt Janet and Garnett’s wife were making breakfast for all of us. As soon as I came near our campsite the smell of bacon, eggs, biscuits, gravy, hash browns, and pancakes hit me. That smell made me ten times hungrier than I already was and I could already taste breakfast. My sister and I started walking ahead of the group, almost in a run, not being able to wait for breakfast. We reached the campsite and there all the food was, just waiting for us. Everyone got in line and began filling their plates. I grabbed a lawn chair and sat in the circle that everyone had made. The guys of our group began talking about how uneventful the morning was, and how none of the fish were biting. Everyone else was either listening to the guys, or caught up in their own conversations with each other.

I was full and feeling like I was going to burst when everyone finished breakfast and began cleaning up. We had decided that we were going to go to a new fishing spot and see how that worked. It turned out be by a bridge that was submerged in water, because of the rain that night. We went as far out as possible on it and cast our lines. Of course we weren’t the only ones there. I ended up meeting a old man named George Jones. He wasn’t the famous George Jones, but I thought it was still pretty cool that he had the same name. George turned out to be real funny, and we found out that he was camping on a site fairly close to us. My stepmom ended up getting a picture of all of the trout my sister and I caught, and George happened to be in the background. Later that day my dad was irritated about his fishing pole, and I told him, “You’re just jealous that you didn’t get a picture with George Jones.” It has been a joke between the family ever since. My uncle Brian and cousin Ryan were down the river from us, and the current happened to be heading toward them. To mess with them, Garnett, Larry, and I took moss that was lying around and sent it downstream toward them, so it would catch on their fishing poles and make it even harder to fish. After we sent the moss down, I ran down to where they were fishing to see if it really would catch on their fishing poles. Sure enough, the moss slowly made it’s way downstream and onto their fishing poles. They were yelling and cursing and I couldn’t help but laugh. Larry and Garnett were laughing too, and that’s when uncle Brian and Ryan realized that they were behind it. It was one of our funnier pranks of the trip.

We ate trout that night for supper. It was a dinner of fried trout and sliced potatoes that were fried. The potatoes still had the skin on them, so we called them dirty potatoes, because they really did look dirty. They sure tastes better than they looked though. That night we all sat around the campfire and made plans for tomorrow. We would have to get up extra early in order to fish because we were packing up and leaving that day. It was bittersweet to leave so early but my sister and I had to get back to our mom’s house and prepare for school the next day.

The next morning we began packing up our tent and everything inside of it, except for our fishing poles. We were going to go fishing one last time before we left. I ate a short

breakfast of pop-tarts and then headed out with everyone to a different fishing spot. It was almost shaped like a pond, but it was smaller and had water running into it and out of it. The water there was cold and looked clear, like all of the other fishing spots in Bennett Springs. Only this one wasn’t as crowded. We fished for about two hours and then packed up and headed back to the campsite for one last time. I made sure that all of the fishing poles and lures were packed tightly into the bed of the truck, alongside the tent. As I was putting our bags into the tool box and into my step-mother’s Jeep, it started to rain again. Not a torrential downpour like before, but it was still pretty heavy. Everyone said their goodbyes and then parted ways. My dad, sister, and I piled into the truck and started driving back towards the city. Another six hour drive was ahead of us, and it was very sad to leave Bennett Springs. The memories we made there were unforgettable and I’m very glad that I got the opportunity to go on that fishing trip with my family and friends. I absolutely can’t wait until the next trip down to Bennett Springs. I have a feeling that it’s gonna be even better than before.

The Final Will and Testament of Hayley Spence I, Hayley Spence, hereby gift the following items to the following people upon my death.

If he wishes to let Cassidy or Blake use it, he may; my duck call necklace that he gave to me on the Christmas of 2010 as something to remember me by, and my iPod if Cassidy does not wish to have it. I also hold him responsible for Cassidy and her future, to support her and her decisions, and to protect he when she cannot protect herself. I gift my brother, Parker Steven-Tike Warner, with any books that he would like, and any board games that he would like. I expect him to be more patient with others, and to learn how to handle problematic situations. I gift my step-mother, Jennifer Dawn Spence, with my John Deere blanket that she made for my on the Christmas of 2011, and the responsibility of being my father’s fishing partner whenever Blake and Cassidy are not able to. I expect her to love and care for him, Brianna, Blaine, Blake, and Cassidy. I gift my step-father, Steven Craig Warner, with the responsibility of taking care of my mother and keeping her safe. I also expect him to be more patient with others, and be a caring and understanding father to Parker. I gift my step-sister, Brianna Cheryl Bogan, with the responsibility of being an older sister to Blaine and Blake. I expect her to support them, and do her best to care for them, protect them, and agree to disagree with them..

I gift my step-brother, Blaine Bogan, with the responsibility of keeping Brianna and Blake out of trouble. I expect him to protect them, and do his best to support them, and agree to disagree to disagree with them. I gift my step-brother, Blake Michael Bogan, with the responsibility of being my fathers hunting and fishing partner whenever he can. I expect him to learn from him, and be there for him whenever Cassidy is not able to. I also hold him responsible for agreeing to disagree with Brianna and Blaine. I gift my nana, Jo Jacobsen, with the University of Kansas blanket that she made me as something to remember my by. I hold her responsible for taking care of Ashley, Steven, Papa-Jake, Eric, Robert, and my mother. I expect her to be a caring and understanding grandmother to her grandchildren and to help my mother see reason in times when she cannot. I gift my grandmother, Rita Mae Spence, with the angel necklace with the color of my birthstone on it, and with the responsibility of taking care of my grandfather, my sister, my father, my aunt and uncle, and my cousins. I gift my grandfather, Sherman Spence, with the responsibility of taking care of my grandmother and my great-aunt Julia, and to have the will to keep on fighting and get stronger. I hope that my requests are honored and that everyone can remember for the good I have done in life, and leave out all the rest. I promise everyone that I will be watching over them and doing my best to look out and protect them. I hope that everyone understands that I have made the decisions I have made for a reason, and to forgive me for the wrong that I have done in life. I expect everyone to go on living life to the fullest, and to keep moving forward even when times get tough. I want everyone to keep me in their memory, and know that I’ll be okay. I also would like everyone to forgive those around them for the mistakes they have made, and to try to be the best person that they can be. My last and final request is that I be cremated, and that my ashes be spread on a duck hunting marsh. If that is not possible I wish to be buried in a cemetery either in or outside of Mound City, Kansas.
