***********


Editor's Note:   Why was Alice calling Allen a fool?  Diana thinks Allen probably wasn't being safe about where they were cutting the wood which made me wonder if Allen knew how to swim?  I would think the water would be rushing and very high this time of year in the Big Creek.  I assume the Big Creek could only be the Conewango.

*There's no accounting for personal taste.
