Last spring I taught at Duke and I rented a car and drove out to Jupiter Level
and thoroughly enjoyed the place. It's beautiful. But there were a lot of snakes
(big snakes). And many places flying the Stars and Bars between tobacco barns. I
made a colleague come along with me, she's from Kansas, and us Flatlanders were
freaked out by the snakes. The most I see around here are garter snakes at the
lake place. Kansas I think has no life forms. Can't be sure. Anyway, in the end,
we chickened out on trying to find Tony himself. She could care less about
hostas and I was pretty sure I'd embarrass myself with the botanical
nomenclature or something. Very friendly staff, lot of fun going on there, as is
clearly revealed in the catalogs.

On the cover re: Chick. I am not sure if he is the one that looks like the donut
or the gas mask.
