The author would like to specifically thank Mr. Ken Ballard, Sr., who provided highly detailed information about the life and the work of a milkman in the era of this story. In fact, Mr. Ballard was a milkman with 41 years of service to two Danbury area dairies and his insight was indispensable in creating an authentic character.
