Bernard and Joseph, Part 2
Artie Powell is not happy about coming from a large family. Having six kids around, he always feels he's merely one of the bunch. Artie loves his siblings, but sometimes they can be a real pain! Then Bernard tells Artie a story about Joseph, a young man who had 11 brothers. Hearing about Joseph makes Artie realize that the trouble that he has with his brothers is nothing compared with the way Joseph's brothers treated him. Artie rethinks his ill feelings about his family, and Whit's End finds a new premier storyteller: Bernard Walton.
