    Wasn’t there a character known as “Granny” who used to explain the money her sons brought home from robbing banks as her “egg money”? Perhaps this is on the list and I simply missed seeing it.

    Thanks!

      You have good memory. There was an “Auntie”, often referred to as “Auntie Egg” who did exactly that with her nephew in 1962. I organized Auntie under the “Other Characters” section since she didn’t really feel like a “bad guy”. There are many other stories in that time period I haven’t documented yet though, so I’m glad you asked. Thanks for the reading!
