Hey, this is rather good stuff. I think you have Mother nailed. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you with Father's full-name, at the time I was away from MC for a while. Oh, and I agree with everything that Christy said about Dog. Dog is one of the hardest characters to write because of the influence of Scooby-Doo. When I wrote his lines for Reunion Christy laughed at me because, seriously, they were so off Ted-speak. There was a time when Ted/Kevin was making a dictionary of Ted-speak, I don't know if he ever finished it? I'm intrigued by this story and think it's progressing nicely.
