Caption: Somewhere in the Wild West...
Meridien: {a young girl in a straw hat} Why are you squinting like that, pa?
Oliver: {her father, a cowboy, with a mean squint in one eye} Eyelash!
Oliver: Simon says get it out!!! Honestly!
Meridien: Can we play tea party now?

The author writes:

Gunslingers are always squinting for some reason. I tried to make Oliver look a bit harassed and not at all the sort that would want to play tea party unless driven to it.
