I suppose to others it might have seemed that Joe was spoilt, but it wasn't really Ben's fault that he was wealthier when Joe was born and settled in his own home
There were more people in the area and so there was a school for Joe to go to, as well
But I think the love that the brothers had for each other shone through all the petty squabbles
Sounded nasty, that snake bite
Little Joe forever
Thank you, Lynne! Ben couldn't help but provide his youngest with everything he'd never been able to provide to his two older sons. Despite material possessions, Ben made sure all three of his sons loved each other. I'm pleased to know you enjoyed this story.
