(Aged 21)

Went down with Lyle to get a boiler but didn’t. 


Editor's Note:  Is it just me or does anyone else think Allen shafted Ray in the cart deal?  Allen got it at a serious family discount of $2.50 and sold it to Ray for $25!  All Ray seems to do is work for the Cass men and this is how he gets thanked.  I hope there was some more to it than how it looks from here and that Allen wasn't so mercenary. 

Finally Allen got to see Alice (Warn) again!
