Editor's Note: What I learned today is one fingered mittens are good for many things including hunting and snowboarding. Maybe Allen was the kind of hunter who thought he just needed the right equipment for success. I find it interesting that Frank was willing to banish Allen over tobacco and yet he smokes himself. I didn't figure on that. It seems to be that old parenting adage "Do as I say and not as I do" in action.
