|Celebrating with potatoes
|On the afternoon of today, when I did have
a goodly number
of potatoes in piles, I did have thinks as how this was the
of Saint François of Assisi and the
of Jean François Millet; so I did take as many potatoes as the years they did
upon earth. Forty-four potatoes I so took for Saint François of Assisi, for his years were near
forty-four. Sixty potatoes I so took for lean François Millet, for his years were sixty years. All these potatoes I did lay in two rows. In one row was forty-four and in the other row was sixty.
