***********


Editor's Note:  I don't know who Chuck is but he is some rough company.  I believe he is the one holding Allen's journal hostage--though I'm betting Allen just thinks he misplaced it for the moment.  It is Chuck's handwriting the other day mentioning new arrivals too.  Don't worry, we know Allen get's it back or how would I be able to infer all this.  :-)

I will look into who Aunt Frieda is post haste or, rather, tomorrow as today has been a bit delayed already.  Hope everyone had a happy Labor Day.
