Long ago about sixty years from now the people used to eat but two meals a day. The first in the morning about eleven o'clock. They used to have a lot of work done at that hour. They used to have the second meal about six o'clock. Potatoes and sour they used to have for both meals. They used to have fish regularly. They used to have meat only twice a year at Christmas and Easter. The richer people used to have meat every Sunday. They used to sow nothing but potatoes.
