Before Laetitia and her group headed southeast to Pratt, they visited the Barton County Historical Society Museum and Village. After visiting the Kansas Wildlife and Parks Museum in Pratt, Laetitia asked her group if they were interested in making the 30-mile journey to visit the Carrie Nation Home Museum. The group expressed little interest in visiting a memorial to someone whose claim to fame was wrecking bars and attacking nude statues with a hatchet.
The group was staying at a local bed and breakfast. About an hour after they arrived, Laetitia stopped by a local tavern for a drink before joining the group for dinner. Neither Pratt nor the tavern was especially engaging, but a story by the bartender about one night when the bar was livelier than usual gave Laetitia the limerick of the day.
When Peg went to a tavern in Pratt
Wearing nothing but shoes and a hat
She found men overjoyed
But their wives so annoyed
That they stood up and gave tit for tat.
