“I don’t think we’ll cultivate this afternoon, Frank,” his father commenced slowly.
“Why–” The boy started to speak but stopped. He saw the frightened grayness return to his mother’s face. His father, too, seemed restless. He crossed and recrossed his knees nervously.
“Well, Frank,” he continued, “it’s this way. Your Ma ain’t been feelin’ well for quite a while and we rode over to the doctor’s this morning to see what was the matter.”
A slight story about a farmer trying to decide what to do in light of the poor health of his wife…and his son’s restlessness.
