                   people for their help: Dave Reid, Bill       back and brings out a cat. The cat jumps up on the table and
                 Bergeron, Fred Pogmore, Chris and Dave         starts scratching and mauling the dog. Still the dog doesn’t
             Hill, ER Tom and Ann White, and Diane              move. The man says, “Doc, I guess you are right. How
Rayhall. Thank you all so much for all your help.               much do I owe you?” “480 dollars.” “480 dollars! Just to
