WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL, MR. HOOKRADLE OWNED THE CORNER HOUSE,
MUCH LIKE OUR LOT TODAY. (WE LIVE ON A CORNER PARCEL.)
HE (MR. HOOKRADLE) SAID, "IF YOU CUT MY CORNER I'LL
CUT YOUR EARS OFF." ALL THE LITTLE KIDS WERE AFRAID OF
HIM. HE WOULD SAY, "WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME DOWN TO MY
BASEMENT AND SEE MY EAR COLLECTION?" HE SAID HE HAD AN
EAR-ROOM FULL TO HIS CEILING. NO ONE EVER CUT ACROSS HIS
LAWN AGAIN.
