"Boy, but that melon was good."
Ah, summertime. The family, with the first paycheck in a long while, and a new car, head out for the country to spend time with Grandma Lenora Hemminger. While in the area they stopped over to the cemetery where Mary's pappa Ovella is buried. It is also where Grandma Slane, Ovella's mother, has just recently been buried. They fill in the grave some which has apparently settled some.
Cakes, pies, berries, candy and melon are all mentioned. The kids love getting out.
