Joe Bob also has the nasty habit of referring to himself in third person. Now Joe Bob, even though he's -as his Uncle Hubert would say- “a brick shy of a load”, he is a very good person. He always helps out were ever he can, even when he probably shouldn't. Every Thursday Joe Bob goes to the local dog shelter and gives every dog a special home treat made with love.

Bill cohen called her anyway, for the situation was urgent. Dianna Dillon picked up to a very unctuous Bill cohen.

The poem “To a Mouse” by Robert Burns is obviously about a man talking to a field mouse whose nest he has just destroyed with a plow. The man feels bad for destroying the mouse’s home and apologizes for what has happened. The deeper meaning of the poem is that no matter how much preparation goes into planning for the future, fate, or even someone else’s plan, can get in the way and demolish your plans. Burns compares the mouse and the man to one another in saying, “The best-laid schemes of mice and men/ Go often astray,” (Burns 39-40). The mouse in the poem worked hard to build its nest in preparation for the winter it was to endure in the future.

We know that Candy and his dog grew up and worked together herding sheep, we also know they’re both older and can’t work as well as they used.

This is interpreted that she is smothering Moss like a child, and he needs more space.
