FBI Makes a Funny!

OK, I enjoy a good joke just as much as the next guy; so I have to give the FBI their props--they got me good (in a good way). I picked up my box from the post office. I didn't even rush to get home because while the Denver Mint robbery interests me I'm not obsessed with it. I run some errands, chat on the phone, clean the kitchen, etc...then I open the box. What do I find, but 500 pages on the Cherryvale Bank robbery!!!! The FBI told me they had found 20 pages related to Vivian! I am now doing a mental dance of joy!
The pages are interesting too. Some of it can't be read of course (microfilm images deteriorate over time) but nothing is red lined. I'm not even 100 pages through yet but the information is tantalizing (George M. Chase was probably still living during Cherryvale & Picher). I know it won't answer all of my questions BUT IT'S GREAT!

Wooohooo! I got my little orange slip in the mail saying I have a parcel from the FBI that I need to pick up! Yeahhh! I think it's those files on the Denver Mint Robbery, but I'm also hoping they combined it with the 20 pages on Vivian Chase that they say they found. It's so completely cool. I'm giddy with anticipation. It takes so little to make me happy!
