1938... AT THE PRECISE MOMENT BEGINNING THE YEAR... JIMMY, HAVING WANDERED TO THE CENTER OF BRENDA’S NUT FARM... MISTAKENLY SEEING HIS HALF-SISTERS, BETTY, MEG, AND LITTLE JUDY... SEEING THEM ENGAGED IN WHAT ABSOLUTELY APPEARED TO BE A LEBANESE AFFAIR - A QUESTIONABLE THREE-WAY - A LIAISON... (THOUGH JIMMY WAS NOT SURE THAT’S WHAT IT WAS - AND EVEN IF IT WAS WHAT HE THOUGHT IT WAS, HE WAS NOT CERTAIN HE HAD THE NAME OF IT DOWN PAT)... (THOUGH HE WAS CERTAIN THAT WHATEVER IT WAS BEGAN WITH AN L)... (AND, REGARDLESS, HE WAS GOING TO SPREAD IT AROUND)... BUT ALL THAT ASIDE (AND WITH MEG NOT EVEN BEING AWARE OF JIMMY’S AWARENESS)... ALL MEG THOUGHT IT TO BE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE HER HALF SISTER, LITTLE JUDY’S EAR A GOOD YANK... AND WITH BETTY THINKING IT TO BE ONLY AN OPPORTUNITY TO TRY AND SNEAK A QUICK SMOKE... (NOT KNOWING THE LUCKY STRIKE SHE THOUGHT SHE HAD, WAS CANDY)... AND WITH LITTLE JUDY NOT THINKING ANYTHING AT ALL OUTSIDE OF GETTING AWAY AS FAST AS POSSIBLE)... AND, SO THE YEAR BEGAN...
