Chapter 17

When Eustace K. Dobbs got out of the truck he did not do what a body would expect. He began to do a simple hill dance and slap his heels as he jumped and sang.

Hey did diddle
The piggy's in the middle
The farmer grabs the bucket
The knife goes down the middle

This was the song that had made his father famous, the song that all people knew. It was a famous holiday song. The boy's papa was taken aback, as he like all people had good memories of this song.

Eustace advanced on the boy's papa, who stood transfixed by the familiar voice singing the old holiday song. Even though the voice was broken, the Dobbs family tone was unmistakable.
