Some stories were just plain hard to understand; they certainly did talk different then. Some I really did enjoy and some...... I skipped. That is the beauty of the mega packs, read what you like and skip what you don't. Pamisue

Interesting group of shorts I don't think most of them had an actual point. They were just really about life and the quirks it is. I think the dog one stands out the most to me or maybe the hanging man or the couple divorcing.
