VACATION TIME OUT
This matter is too significant to put off until February. Darl Bennett sent me this nice ventriloquist figure (and case) with the following note:
"I would like to get this figure into the hands of a younger person just starting out who is serious about pursuing ventriloquism. I remembers how hard it was to earn enough to purchase it myself many years ago. However, since it has been going unused for over a year now, and you have proven yourself to be a man of sound judgement and extremely trustworthy, I have no problem letting you decide where and when to give it away."
