How fun!

And how good of you to bill Annie over Helen. That makes me smile.

Glad to make you smile. That's the proper order for the story, of course!

I hope you don't mean "Girls Next Door" in a Hugh Hefner kind of way... Bree's not THAT kind of girl!

Originally, it said "Girl Next Door," but with two characters designated such, I had to make the noun plural!
