    Reminds me of the occasion when David Green sent his son, Perry, to Point Barrow to buy furs a long ago. Don Sheldon flew them, and David's $50,000, for the trip. The weather came down and the poker games started. Perry lost the entire bag of money and Don had to fly Perry back to Anchorage to face his rather irate father . . . . .

    Ever sell to ol' Jules, the guy with the really black beard? Used to be near Mary's Club 25 . . .

    Very likely it was the old Black Russian, Jules. He did have good furs, though.
