Dear Leon,

I'm sorry. I had responded to Chuck the Heretic and had closed with

Yata yata,

And I assumed that it was I who was the subject of the wonderful support and
comment refering to the laughing buddha. I deeply appreciated the comment.

Sorry, I can see how taste in humor can vary. I can dance a finer line once
I get the feedback from the group and get to know people better. And.
Thanks very much for the feedback. And I still appreciate the laughing
buddha remark and the loving rascal that sent it. It seemed a perfect
remark to me(cause I knew or imagined I knew the context)

With love,
