  Indeed, according to the calendar, Tom was the ONLY dressed man for it
... and thus shall live a set of imagery I shall never forget despite
trying. However, December Man was the one most remember, I think. While
silent auction records went for between $20-25, the live auction version
went for over $200, especially since all the "participants" in the
calendar signed it :) (which reminds me, a signed volume from ALL the
authors of _the Dinosauria_ (2nd. Ed.) went for over $500, and the proud
owner would later tell me she will have that book buried with her ... love
you, Jeri!!

  All in all, an excellent program. My impressions should be forthcoming
today or tomorrow -- I just slept for 16 hours.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
