Slim arrives with the wagonload of lumber, tar paper, shingles, nail, and seedlings (oak, maple, pine, etc.) "Morning boys. How was the weekend? I brought a bunch of tree seedlings so we can have some shade 'round here in 'bout 20 years."

"Well Slim. get em planted then, hows the wife and 18 kids doin?" 

Just then a wagon pulls up and a fella gets out with a package.  "Here I got this developed fer ya, came out good."

With that he heads off.

"Gopher Grease is right. we need some watermelons."  Delmonico hitches up the team and heads to the South Loup River in search of water melons.

Hours later Delmonico returns with several watermelons.  "I told ya there would be watermelons if'n I could find some sodbusters."

"Whew that be a mouthful, wish I had enough pewter power ta post the picture.  Bet Slim al do it fer me if'n I do this stuff."

"Saw some other homesteaders, but I ain't buyin' no melons from folks that keep the milk cow on the roof."

"Dat's it, lloks just like mine, cept mine has darker wood on da handle and don't have no sheaf cause I use it in da kitchen."  And with one fell swoop Delmonico cuts the mighty Black Diamond watermelon from the South Loup river.  It is at the perfection of ripeness and splits open with just a slight thrust of the knife. 

"Here Slim, ya may have good cheese in Wissyconsion, but there ain't no better watermelon in the world than the Black Diamonds that grow in the sandy soil near the South Loup river in Newbrasky."

"Ya pee in the hole to keep the sand moist" yells Trinity from his bed. 

Trinity yawns big and proclaims "Boy was that a good nap, Ah'm so hongry, Ah feel like Ah can eat a cow."  Trinity grabs his '73 and looks for the cow on the roof everyone's been talkin about when he sees the job Gophergrease did on his outhouse.  " Shocked :oWhat in tarnation happened here?  Well, Ah can see that don' nobody like a good joke!"  Now Ah guess Ah gotta go where Ah been goin all along... that medder with them funny green balls what bleed.  Oh, look, Slim's eating on one of 'em now."
