In the energetic, little town of Catwaggle, five friends enjoy employment at five companies. Who works where, at what job, the age of the company, and the length of employment can all be determined by following the clues below.

FRIENDS: Allen, Bill, Cliff, Doris, Ellen
COMPANIES: 20-Digital Accounting, Outbound Books, Big Toe Ballet Co., Square Links Grocery Chain, Rebar Saloon Supplies
STREETS: Alphabet Avenue, Burnt Brick Boulevard, Pebbled Pedal Path, Real Dirt Drive, Greenpenny Street
COMPANY AGES: years: 3, 11, 17, 25, 27
EMPLOYMENT: years: 2, 8, 12, 16, 24

1. Nobody has been employed at a company for more years than the company has been in business.

2. Big Toe Ballet Co. has been at the foot of Pebbled Pedal Path for twenty-five years, and the business on Real Dirt Drive has been open for seventeen years.

3. Bill (sometimes appropriately called "Bills"), who was apparently learning to count on his toes at age 3 weeks, years later became a partner in the firm of 20-Digital Accounting, located on Greenpenny Street.

4. Ellen started work at Square Links Grocery Chain a year after it opened on Real Dirt Drive.

5. Twenty-four years ago, Doris helped Cliff get his job at Outbound Books, which had been in business on Alphabet Avenue for three years. He is still happy there.

6. Also happy is Allen (nicknamed "Al Ert"), the security guard at Big Toe Ballet Co., who prevented a robbery and was applauded for being on his feet.

7. Doris likes to travel, so she was happy to land the job as driver of the delivery truck for Rebar Saloon Supplies, in business for eleven years.
