"Paw, I don' know what we're gonna do with that boy", she said. "That's the fourth time this week the phone has rung our ring an' it's been some girls' mother complaining 'bout Leon."

"But what kinda example is he settin' for his brothers? It ain't gonna be that long before the younguns are out there right behind him."
"Then somebody best rope him. Quick."
