The friend even called Hugo from the police A pickle for the knowing ones, but Hugo hung up. Another thing that no one was aware of was that, while his shipment was traveling across the Atlantic, the miners went on strike and his delivery was more than welcome and sold at high price. The author, Lord Timothy Dexter, was an eccentric American businessman who got rich by making a series of horrible business decisions that, due to luck, turned out to be extremely profitable. After too many cocktails and a bad night with the wife, legend has it that Dexter and his son Samuel chased the peeper with a pistol and shot at him, only missing by a hair.

His wife became increasingly suspicious and green-eyed over his sudden influx of fame, not to mention the constant cast of characters intruding into her home. With all his new glitter, Dexter expanded his imperial essence with an entourage of the strange and metaphysical. This work was originally published as an exercise in vanity. People thought it was a stupid idea, a surefire bankrupcy.

Instead, the Lord was laid or rest in a quaint cemetery in the hills, where wheatgrass quickly engulfed his headstone. By this time, through his exploits, Dexter actually began to acquire a considerable knowledge of trading techniques. Three thousand people came to the funeral, but apparently Dexter was unhappy that his wife did not grieve properly so he refused to make a surprise appearance at the wake and later beat her with a cane. Lord Timothy Dexter was finally laid to rest in a cemetery. People thought it was a stupid idea, a surefire bankrupcy. There are comas, dots and more comas and more dots, exclamation marks and more dots and more comas and more dots, question marks and even more dots.
