“Ma! Pa! Dem’ Greeley boys done struck again! My dresses are gone from the line! They took my unmentionable too! Mamma, I can’t believe they do this. I need ’em by 3! Why today! Why today!” Barbara bounces in and out in a flash. Her long brown curls springing up and down as she moves.
Ma looks over at Pa. “How long do you think you can keep a hold of her? She’ll figure you out. I’m not havin’ none of it.”
Pa looks up. “I only have till 3. After that, we’ll see. You want a Greeley in our house?!”
