Title Grapes are for Sharing
Description Yes, it is true that there is no one without his weak side, and my errors have certainly been of both the head and the heart. Source: This story was told by Howard Cox, son of Fred W.

Isn't it pretty cold for a sick lady to be sleeping in a wagon?" "Yes," agreed May. "It froze ice on the chicken pan last night. That is quite cold for March."
