Editor's Note: There are plenty of Wheelers about Carroll at this point but I can't find one Laverne. Irma Bunce and Allen are clearly stepping out at this age but I just found out something really sweet. Frank Warn, who always gets a mention from Allen actually goes on to marry Irma Bunce. (Remember the double date to the theatre?). Also, Frank is Alice's cousin.
Again, Unkle Gib is Gilbert Eccles and Glen is Allen's cousin. I must hurry with the name index and also figure out what "cutting bolts" refers to because it is a common task.
