During the wait on Joy's baby, Lovie and the narrator learn that Lovie's ex-son-in-law has shot and killed himself after killing his second wife, a murder-suicide that is eclipsed by the news that same day of race car driver Dale Earnhardt’s death. The deaths, which take place just down the road from Lovie's house, dredge up memories for Lovie of her son Marshall Shelton's murder, the story of which unfolds in this chapter. Lovie sends the narrator alone into the lair of the geese to take more eggs for the incubator.

Keywords:   son-in-law, murder-suicide, Dale Earnhardt, Marshall Shelton
