Re: Auction

Sorry guys,

That las post was supposed to be a private post to Chick Wasitis  -  We tend
to chat in a very Flippant way some times (must be left over from going
through the sixties).

I do not want to denigrate the Hosta Library in any way.  Bob and others
have done a wonderful job here and the site has been very useful to us at
Winterberry Farms.  It allows us to link to pictures of many of the plants
that we grow on our web site.  I donated the plants because I felt it was a
small repayment for the use of the site.  I really do not have ulterior
motives  --  it just fulfills my need to be sarcastic (I know, I can not
hold a candle to Chick's wit), but of course there is some truth to the fact
that the donation does give us some exposure.

Ah, Well, it not the first time I missent an email.

Jim Anderson
