Oh, John! The toast...

Have you ever slept on branches?

It tickles.

I learned it in Boy Scouts.

Now the blanket.


Smells good.

What do you think of my pillow?

A great idea.

Put this on.

And we are!






You're so far away!

Can not you get close a little?

I'm well clothed...

You know...

You know I'm very afraid

of homeless people.



What annoying!

Why do not you put the

axle over the hole and

put the cat underneath?

Thanks, good idea.

It has been fun.

I'm fixing the wheel.

I have little gas.

I would like to help you but,

I do not have gasoline here.

Are you going far?

To california.

Maybe to wash gold.

But I do not think it will come.

Well, he has a problem.

Where does it come from?

He was a farmer in Minnesota.

They took the land.

It must have been hard.

Clear! Surely he knows

everything about agriculture.

I thought so until a couple of years ago.

Would you like to stay

and work with me?

I just arrived and...

and I do not know

much about agriculture.

Hey friend,

- Are you kidding?

- Not seriously.

I'll open the gate for him.

Look how it runs.

The water leaves the earth spongy.

It is wonderful.

I'll eat sardines for a change.

I have not seen them since yesterday.



Hilda, my wife asks,

that maybe they would

like to eat rabbit stew.

Of course, of course we will go.

Thank you very much.

Perfect, you will be welcome.

Tell me, what did you think of that?

Well, when they want to eat rabbit,

you have to place the wire like that.

When the rabbit arrives,

Pum!, and is trapped.

- Yes...

- Yes...

In the case where the wire fails...

I catch it.

Who'd say!


These carrots were with herbs

that started yesterday.
