Ha that’s great… “I’m kinda sick of it..you can come pick it up now”
…did you ever read the Gardner Heist book? It’s really interesting. Don’t know if I really believe what the solution is in the book but it’s interesting.

Yeah, I read it maybe two years ago? I had heard though that it’s very inaccurate in parts – they don’t sell it in the gift shop at the museum itself, for example. (Though I bet they have other reasons for not selling it!)
I don’t know if I buy his solution either, but it was certainly a really interesting read!
