I just thought of something which strikes me as odd. On another thread, Nehemiah mentioned that the Nintendo had been the hottest Christmas present that year - that is very true. My son got a Nintendo too and I don't think we saw him for a month! But here's the odd thing. John Ramsey said that Burke had been playing with some model that evening and that he had helped him finish it so that Burke would go to bed. Did the Ramseys confiscate the Nintendo? (you can read that as "limit it's use") If they didn't, I am surprised that Burke was playing with a model - and that John wasn't prising the Nintendo out of his hands to get him to go to bed! Any thoughts?
