   “We all had to crawl out from under the canopy and crowd up front of the lancha ... The three kids stood in a row thwartwise in the bow, pinching each other surreptitiously. I got behind them, hunched over like a man with a bellyache, Elva and Betty flanked me ... After that we got our pictures -- they looked like something taken through a silk hat.”
   --How Green Was My Father, Chapter 4
