Well Thump, I know you didn't intend to make me sad but you did ...in a good kind of way.

What many may not understand is that Ann never hit the board. Her exchanges with you were through me, I was her special kind of fool. She wasn't a Internet type person but as you know, she was a ferocious reader. After a night of one of her all night reading thangs, she used to get on my nerves waking me up and telling me to tell you something. We were making out or budget one day and your name came up. I said to her, when did Thumper have anything to do with OUR budget. She said, "but he said this book was the bomb". I told her that she should then go get the money from you. Yeah Thump, you brought back memories.

I often open up one of her books and see little references to you. It might simply say, "Thumper's suggestion". I believe one such book was, The Step Between by Penny Mickelbury. Another was My Soul to Keep by Tananrive Due. In the back of that one it says, Merry Xmas Love ...hope you enjoy the book ...Your Man, Carey.
