I popped in to see Pearlie.
We're all in the garden today.
Aye. Z and D are there. They're working very hard in the vegetable garden.
Humph. Ye'll be lucky if anything grows for you.
What do you mean?
Planting on the Sabbath!
But we're not planting! Just getting the ground ready.
It says in the bible, 'Six days ye shall labour but ye must keep holy the Sabbath Day!'
Oh. Alright then. Do you want tea or anything?
Right. I'm off back to work. See you...
I suppose I should be relieved that she didn't add the bit about being put to death for toiling on the Lord's Day. And I wondered if Pearlie, her being so pious and all, mightn't have been answered better studying her bible rather than working at a puzzle book.
