Mabel Jones began clearing away, rattling dishes to cover Nona's humming of "Happy Days Are Here Again." Bea Cosgrove found him at the sheep pen, arms resting on the barrier. He looked at her blankly. "How many sheep are there supposed to be?" she asked. "There were 20," he said. "Miss Cosgrove, what's the matter with her this morning? 1 don't understand it. 1 wanted to talk to her, ask her to marry me. and she acts like she did. Do you know what ails her?" "She's jealous.
