Fritz is one of my childhood friends.  When writing "Lake Effect Fear," I had difficulty with truly painting a physical description of Fritz, nor did I have any childhood photographs to scan.  I thought it will be much easier to describe him by comparing him to the character Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story--a popular movie that can be seen on TV in endless rotations during the Christmas holiday.   To make this comparison even more amusing, Fritz also had the Red Rider BB Rifle when we were kids.
