QUOTE: There is a rule about this. When a neighbor appears
at a farmer's house at mealtime and is, of course invited to
eat, he can get out of it by saying, "Thanks, I just got up
from the table." After that the most the farmwife can press
on him is a cup of coffee or a glass of buttermilk. Unless
there is pie. A man can always accept a piece of pie. On a
farm, pie is the great denominator. ~ Rural Free: A
Farmwife's Almanac of Country Living
