    Horace Potee was sitting at their cabin's table, wringing his hands.  The truth was, Horace was a champion hand wringer.  His wife, Maude, paced behind him.
     
    "I dunno .., I just dunno," he proclaimed.  "If we had something to sell that's worth anything, we'd be able to afford more seed plus maybe get another ox to pull the plow."
     
    "Oh Horace," Maude wailed.  "I told you that movin' out here was a mistake.  My brother had a job for you at the grain and feed.  We'd be in a nice house and .."
     
    Horace stiffened.  "I gotta stand on my own feet, Maude.  No ways am I gonna take charity from your brother, and that's that." 
     
    It was their standard evening argument.  Their lines were well practiced and they seldom varied.
     
    More hand wringing from Horace, then...  "Maybe I can get lucky at cards."  
     
    This was a new twist.
