"There's another barn on fire! Quick, get a bucket brigade going — we need to put the fire out before everything burns. Again. It is getting so tiring watching all our stuff burn while we're trying to run a farm here. Too bad we can only afford the barns constructed of fatwood. But no time to think of that — a barn's burning again! 3rd time this week!"
