The old pastor made it to a practice to visit the parish school one day a week.
One week, he walked into the 4th grade class. The children were studying the US states. “How many states can you name?” he quizzed of the class.
All together, they came up with about 40 names.
He laughed, and told them that in his day students knew the names of all the states.
One young boy piped up, “Yes, but in those days there were only 13.”
