The three men riding onto Mayor McGinley's farm this Saturday evening didn't doubt he'd be at home. Saturday evening was when McGinley composed the Sunday sermon.
Lucy McGinley, the Mayor's wife, scattered leftover food in the three pigs in their enclosure when the men pulled their horses to a standstill.
"May we dismount, Ma'am?" Sheriff Cole asked. "We must see your husband. And your boys."
"My boys aint here, Sheriff," she stated flatly, "And my husband's busy."
The pigs snorted and grunted their thanks for the food.
"Fine. It'll be only your husband we interrupt then," Sheriff Cole said, dismounting.

    The pigs snorting added so much atmosphere to the tense moment.
