Jeff did you call for the Doctor? Because I'll be there on the
Saturday. I speak Apple 2 speak and can finagle enough strangeness for
the PCjr to get along with it. So, that's part of the message to
confirm the obvious regarding the Saturday.

And while watching Perry Mason destroy a witness regarding what the
person saw or did not see, he's taking notes. He's also taking notes
on why the district attorney is making a bigger fool of himself than
usual;. He notes that Della is also taking notes, and Della also has
Duke asleep in her lap. The regular pair are sitting with him, and the
rest of the team are asleep in the office. From the Doctor and Perry
Mason an unpublished Memoir.
