Oh, my! I always knew Joe got into trouble playing poker, but to almost lose the Ponderosa?! That was horrifying! I'm glad Adam was able to find something in the contract to use against Roth. Looks like Shakespeare's plays aren't only good for reading and performing. They're great for finding legal loopholes!
I'm so grateful for your commebt, littlejoenice. And it's good to see that you understand the story so well. Many thanks!
