The Jones family had a small farm in Canada, just yards away from the U.S. border.

Because it was so close to the border, the area was the cause for a minor but long-standing dispute between the United States and Canada.

One day, Mrs. Jones came in with the mail. "We just got some news, dear," she said to her husband. “The governments have finally decided that our land is really part of the United States. If we agree, we can choose to join the United States as a part of North Dakota. What do you think?"

"Sign it!” he said, “Call them right now and tell them we accept! I don't think I can stand another Canadian winter!"
