Well, the taper will be in there, along with a bunch of others. Not mentioned thus far is a very limited edition. Contact Bob for the details.

Mailman rang the door bell this afternoon with my book #24. Thanks Bob & Jerry.
Rupert, Your month or two to read this book from cover to cover may, in fact take all winter.

Richie--

I received my copy today (I think it's Book #54), and -- even though I've spent a couple of hours on it already -- I think I can guarantee that it may take all winter.

What a masterpiece from Bob and Jerry! Thanks, also, to all the others who contributed. We owe them a debt of gratitude.

Thanks,

Rupert

Well 38 lbs of book arrived today, ok just kidding it's #38! ;) Being busy at the moment I will wait until I can relax and begin the journey, the nice part is I have the voices of the parties in my head so it will be like they are reading it to me, that my dear fellow of the angle is priceless, good show gentleman. Warmest regards.

Number 66 arrived yesterday. Pleasantly surprised, as I thought the box by the door was a router from Verizon.

I foresee many a Winter evening spent with the book and a wee dram of Springbank.

I couldn't tell on the shipping label which curmudgeon was Jerry, though.

As I turned into my drive last night the car lights shown on a package on my porch; I'm happy to say #74 has arrived. Thank you for the fine work it looks even better than I saw it at Tim Pond this summer. -tomVT
