Here is chapter six! It's really not that bad Susan, certainly not so that one's mind need be boggled anyway, but thank you for your concern. I listened to Joe "Banjo" Burke's CD "A Chapter in History" Volume One whilst typing. But I have a bit of running around to do today so chapter seven will have to wait for another time. I know what you mean Q, I have been in the antiques business for nearly thirty five years. I tend to be a good bit "Old School" myself.
