Lindsey looked up from the brief he was working on at a knock on his door to see a man who could be his twin.
"Can I help you, mister . . .?" Lindsey asked.
"That's just the thing, I need a new identity," the man said.
"What makes you think I can help with that?" Lindsey replied.
"I've been around. Plus, Aunt Ela Mae told me if I had legal troubles cousin Lindsey worked in a huge L.A. law firm that could handle anything," the man explained.
"Aunt Ela Mae?"
"Aunt Ela Mae MacDonald. She's my father's sister," the man explained.
"She's my father's sister, too. So, cousin, what kind of identity do you want?" Lindsey said getting down to the brass tacks of the matter.
"I'd like to work with horses in Kentucky. Something calmer than the International work I've been doing the last few years."
"I think I can have a Kentucky driver's license made up. What name were you thinking of using?" Lindsey asked as he started typing on the computer.
"I was thinking I'd keep it simple, Dad's middle name of Eliot and Ma's maiden name of Spencer."
Lindsey typed away at the form, "Eliot Spencer. Birth date?"
"June 27, 1974."
"Right. We'll say Elizabethtown, Kentucky. I'll just email this down and in a few hours the whole packet-- driver's license, birth certificate, passport, library card, and a work history will be ready, Mr. Spencer," Lindsey said.
"Thanks for the help, cousin." the newly minted Eliot Spencer said as took the papers Lindsey handed him an hour later. "Aunt Ela Mae was right."
"What was the old bird right about, this time?" inquired a mildly curious Lindsey.
"When all else fails in this old world, you can always count on family," Eliot said as he left the office.
