... But we went over to the General Store and bought him a carton of Camels and a Baby Ruth and he was happy.”

“Didn’t we have something else to tell him Fanny?”
“That Baby Ruth is your favorite candy?” Funny Fanny.

“Got it covered Worth, my third Cousin Elston from my mother’s side works all the ballgames, he still sneaks me in after the first inning starts. I haven’t been to a game this year, I don’t like cold baseball, but last September I saw them sweep the Bronx Bombers all the way back east.”
“How many cousins do you have Eddie?” Fanny steps in to change the subject.
“Let’s just say the Dombroskis and Baxters got busy after Armistice Day.”
