"They'll can me purty soon. Jus' as soon as I can't swamp out no bunkhouse they'll put me on the country." pg60 -Candy "Got no teeth," he said. "He's all stiff with rheumatism. He ain't no good to you, Candy. An he ain't no good to himself." pg44 -Carlson
Miss Morgan laughed with relief until she felt that her hair was coming loose on the back of her head. "You mean- you mean- gnomes?" Tularecito nodded. " What did you want to know about them?"

" If you ever run across some nice Chrysanthemums I wish you'd try to get me a few seeds.' That's what she told me." Elisa's eyes grew alert and eager. "She couldn't have known much about chrysanthemums. You can raise them from seed, but it's much easier to root the little sprouts you see there." pg5 -Elisa
