Jed was a country boy from the get go. He was born and raised in rural Vermont.
When he finally married, it was to Kate, a very nice city girl.
Their first house was a modest affair, but they took pride in their yard and garden.
When moles started ravaging the grass, Jed set traps and caught the burrowing varmints.
Knowing Kate, he didn't kill them.
Instead he showed them to her and asked "What do you think we shoud do with them"?
Firmly she said, "Bury them."
