"I looked, but I couldn't believe what I saw. Rosie's pumpkin, bouncing down the front steps, thwump, thwump, thwump. All 34 of them. Then, splat!"

Grampa tells a story about a time when horse-drawn carts were just beginning to give way to automobiles, when a neighbor's backyard held a hungry pig, and when boys could as easily be called upon to stir a simmering pot of apple butter as to clean up a fallen tree.
