I received a phone call early one evening in June, it was from a Bed and Breakfast located in Lunenburg. The gentleman on the other end of the line identified himself as Peter Roe, the proprietor of Seville Roe B and B.

He asked if there was anything that could be done and as luck would have it I was not busy.
