A father and son live on a farm. One day the father says, "Son, things haven't been going very well and I'm afraid we'll have to sell your duck. I'm really sorry, but we need the money. I want you to take the duck to town and bring back the money.
So there was this farmer, his son, and the only animal on their farm that survived the winter: a duck. One day the farmer is sittin? He told his son to go into town and sell the duck for as much money that he could get. So the boy started off to town.
