Ellatrue and Darrick Thorn and their daughter Delia moved to Simsville.
Darrick got a job at the local school. Delia, who was now old enough to go to school, loved having her father as her teacher. It made her feel very special.
"Daddy teaches the children to be good."
"Daddy wants to be a fireman!"
Ellatrue's investments in the business were paying off handsomely, and she felt that before too long they could retire very comfortably. But Darrick was in no hurry to retire and was enjoying his teaching career very much.
