First and foremost I hope that Actor John Karlen (our Willie Loomis) is during well/Health wise and is fully recovered. We most certainly treasure you, Mr. Karlen. The Return Back to COLLIN WOOD by Ms. Leigh-Scott and Jim Pierson I already own/it's a Masterpiece book keepsake and well put together. And hope the DS's legends Lacy, Parker, Leigh-Scott and Pennock enjoyed their special Comic-Con/July 2013 Event: discussing DR. Mabuse, how scary. Did not know there will be an sequel to this hit Mystery-haunt. Congratulations are in honor. Until next time, Peace and best wishes to you all.
