Greetings neighbor! That’s a very nice fence you’ve erected between our properties. You certainly didn’t skimp on the materials. Only the finest of everything. That fence was built to last. Yes, it will keep our livestock separated very nicely, indeed. And you erected it so quickly – all in the short time my wife and I were up country visiting her dear, sick sister. Normally, we wouldn’t be away a whole week but family comes first. I’m sure you know about that. You’ve spent your whole life toiling in the fields, as have I. All to make a better life for you and your family. Yes, we’ve worked hard, both of us. And our fathers worked hard before us. These farms have been in our families for generations. And our sons are hardworking lads as well. One day they’ll inherit this land, well made fence and all. Which brings me to my point, really. That beautifully constructed fence. I’m sure it was mere coincidence you erected it while I was away…..
