Meet Joe Buckley, PI. He’s tailing Tim for the sharks and will Tim deal with him? Also, Tom at work

Here’s some more odds and ends I found in searches related to the mermaid story. Some thing mad it into the story, some did not. Still all of these helped shape the story one way or another. Being able to read old period magazines and view old newsreels and pictures really helped to create the atmosphere.

Roger talks to his parents about toothy Bill, Tom has a misunderstanding with his sister and Tim takes precautions and takes some more pictures of Pigeons. Who’s the pigeon, this time? That’s what we will find out.
