I died 50 years ago and have haunted my killer ever since. I think that banana peel is finally starting to get the message.

320

338
345

Really great twabbles, everyone!

We were caught off guard by the sailor man's suicide. I wish we'd listened when he told us that he couldn't stands no more. Yikes!
