"The kids started yellin' 'Abba-no-potata-man!' at him whenever he came around. They chased after his wagon, throwin' cinders at the back of it. Then the bad luck started."

Grampa tells a story about the one-eyed potato man, who used to ride his horse-drawn wagon down East Street, selling fruits and vegetables. As a boy, Grampa was too scared to buy anything from him but not too scared to throw things at the back of his wagon. And he was in trouble when word got back to his mother.
