The county health worker tried one more time to get the old farmer to put screens on his house. "Look," she said, "do it for your kids. Screens will keep the flies off your food."
"Nah," he replied. "Just use some lime in the outhouse and things'll be fine. Them screens are too damned expensive."
Couple weeks later she happened to be driving by and saw that the house was resplendent with new screens on every window, the front porch was screened in -- it was a showplace for window screens.
Dazed, she pulled in and asked the farmer what had changed his mind.
"Well," he said sheepishly, "it was them white footprints the flies were leaving on my food."
