Yer welcome WM.  Don't think you met Juggs yet.  She stays low since we started shootin at a low down hombre awhile back.

Leo throws in Kentucky Flat, CA.  A town where even if ya lost a finger ya could still count all the folks on yer hands.  It comes with a genuine rundown pony express station.  They got a differnt kind a grass police up there.
