If you have gotten this far through my odd intro phase then congratulations! 🙂 Now we’re getting into the story properly.

Also on a side-note:

Leather is old pickpocket slang for wallets.  In my studies of pickpockets (see “about” to find out why I do these odd things)  I actually found that they had their own slang to use to identify each other and plan a theft in public without rousing suspicion. Now clearly the slang has changed since then, but I’ll use the one I know about.  You’ll see more of it later.
