Editor's Note: As I told Diana just the other day, some days you just can't "bring it" hence the boil mention.  Anyway,  I thought I was onto something with Vernie White instead of Verna and Leo's last name being Reeves just like Asa and Effie Reeves in Corydon but I can find no connection via the census so I continue being stumped on that front.

But fireworks over Celoron sound lovely.
