And as far as the expense is concerned, didn't Ruth inherit almost a
million pounds on the death of her mother? I don't think that branch
of the family are on their uppers yet.
Agreed; David was wincing at the cost of the tractor hire and repair (as
was I!), but didn't seem to consider not paying it or postponing; I'm
sure that they could have managed without it (even if they _don't_ have
another serviceable one) for a while if finances were that bad.
What _was_ Pip doing on the tractor again?
