Thanx for your input. I have wrestled with this alligator for several years and I keep revisiting the family because of new questions. You really have been "working" on it very hard and probably a lot longer than myself. I have arrived at several different "assumptions" in regard to AJ's family. I don't think I can prove or disprove them. So I just keep taking the toy apart and trying to put it back together. I fear I will never have the "answer", but thanks to people like you...and Ken on this site, I keep on. I am going to get all of my records out--again---and merge what you have given me today and see where it takes me.. Thanks again for your hard work!I love tring to solve these puzzles!! Feel free to contact me by my e-mail if you choose!
