They were apparently never allowed inside, and we saw one or two of their bodies as we drove up our street, hit by cars. Jenny had chutzpah though, and came down to our end of the street looking for someone to love her. We did, and we still do, and Jenny still has chutzpah, although now we call it "tortitude."
