Ellen hurried about their home cleaning and organizing. She was preparing the place for the first time her parents would be visiting.
Even though there were major imperfections that could not be hidden, her husband, Ned, didn’t mind helping her clean and organize and attempt to perfect their environment.

“Do you think they’ll notice that there isn’t a porch?” Ellen asked.
“Nah”, Ned replied. “Who’d notice such a thing?”
“Thank you, Ned.”
“You’re welcome, sweetie.”
