"Iím marrying a Russet!"
"A Russet!" replied Mother Potato with pride. "Oh, a Russet is a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!"
As the family shared in the Eldest Daughterís joy, the Middle Daughter spoke up.
"Mother? I, too, have an announcement."

"Mother? Mother Potato? Um, I, too, have an announcement to make."
"Yes?" said Mother Potato with great anticipation.
