    Uh...Brian,

    I think you can rely on Ron, as being one of the many characters here at Wilders, he knows of what he speaks. Of course there is a plethora of them here.... especially in 10F. If you will send me a self addressed carton w/lots of postage on it I will forward the voluminous list.

    Characterizing in Charactersville, Helpful ed

    Aren't you 1st on the character list Mr. Ed? ;) (photo at 11.)
    Ps. If you doubt me Brian N, just ask Maj. Marja and Nat about his character. :eek:

    They are called, as a group, characters when typed..but you could also call them symbols.
