WENDT: Just the workers. Thatâs all you provided?
ALLEN: Well I told about the, uh, the uh old used furniture
WENDT: The furniture. Thatâs all?
ALLEN: Thatâs all I can, you know, remember. Uh â¦ uh I, like again I hadnât, uh, I went by, maybe, maybe a month or two to, to see what they were doing. But I wasnât there. Most the time I was gone with Vecoâs business in Canada and Russia.
