My son-in-law," she explained to the visitor, "he's oncommon kind about humourin' my fancies, an' every year he fetches me a peck or two o' wimberries-you can get 'em reet enough here i' th' market, an' I make us a few pots o' jam-'tis the only kind as ever I could fancy. Eh, what baskets-full the childer used to bring me in i' th' owd days!"
