    Was told that Dock Bedford was a hard worker, that the whole family would go out and pick peas and sat under a big tree for breaks. Dock would pull out his pocket knife and say 'we might as well cut some weeds while we're resting' so everyone else had to join him in pulling weeds during their rest break.
