We gave the picture man a piece of pie. He came back Monday at noon. Eliza is cooking for Virginia. Virginia is sick. The picture man was a funny looking "buzzard" with about 2 teeth out in front. We had mashed potatoes, gravy, squash and raisin pies for dinner that day. The clock had stopped. It was really 11:45. I forgot to tell enough about the picture man. He was tall, dark, but not handsome.
