Late hours meant more wood thrown on the fire, and sharp eyed neighbors watched for sparks from the chimney as a sure sign of more than a passing affair. Hence the word Courting.

Not long afterward Patty was horrified to see Janelle's hair cut jaggedly and well up into the front hair, and Michael showed up with a cut.worse than a crew, ruite a terrifying sight. Asked why they did it, Janelle answered. "We were playing barber shop^ per." Janelle is contrite because everyone exclaims about the'loss of her lovely curls.
