0736: Roberta goes to the kitchen and butters three great big crackers for a light breakfast. There is a sound from the basement, great brute boots tromping up the stairs: clomp, clomp, clomp...

0736:25: Tamara's cheery voice through the basement door: "Later! First boot-wearing morning since Spring!" Clomp, clomp... The back door slams.
Oh, that. Okay.
