Editor's Note:  I bet the parade was awesome.  Too bad Allen was in school but he doesn't show regret.  However, in 1898, Allen seems a bit let down by not getting an invite to the Bunce's.  I'm as surprised as he was.  My guess is it was a very specific party perhaps for family only and clearly not a social event.  Who knows?  I'm struggling right now with who to invite to my child's b'day party.  Do I make it intimate or include the whole class? We're not at the age yet where we can only select real mates in the classroom because feelings will be hurt.  But I digress...parties can cause hurt feelings whatever your age.
