Nicely done story. It moved very smoothly, and had a fresh plot.

I was expecting Timmy to have the evil twins go throw themselves in front of a train, or maybe have the guy with the Nash-Healey run them over. They all got off easy, but hopefully they would all be a little more considerate in the future. It seems that maybe Timmy could have done something to change their minds -- literally -- but that wouldn't have been in character for him.

Characterization is excellent and consistent throughout; setting detail is very well done. An easy ride, indeed (and thanks, Bill Wolfe, for such a useful phrase).
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?
