Editor's Note: Wow, now I really get that saying. Of course, I always understood it to mean some eggs don't hatch so don't think six eggs equals six chicks but I had no idea how many actually don't hatch. And, nothing really is certain. After all the drama with Frank going into Allen's trunk to read his letters before ultimately giving permission for him to visit Mable White, John Glaspy falls ill and the whole adventure is off.
