OT-CHAT: Trials, and Tribulations

Bob Pries said:


Oh, me too, certainly. And it is great fun, isn't it? I do like ideas, 
pondering them, turning them over to take a poke at the other side, and I especially 
like swapping ideas with friends. I am a firm believer in a group going to 
town with a thought to see what may come of it. One idea stimulates another, 
people figure out how to make the most of what they have, and then oops, there 
goes another rubber tree plant.

Speaking of things falling over, I may have something more to offer on my own 
idea about people registering to trial in their own gardens--this in response 
to a couple of notes I've had from folks who know more about the world of 
hybridizing and how it really works than I-- but right now I am so completely 
preoccupied with the terrible hurricane situation in New Orleans, so worried 
about the beautiful city and its wonderful people, and all the creatures, that 
carrying on as usual would feel  unseemly to me now. I did, however, want to 
respond promptly to your very nice note, Bob, and say thanks. 

I hope things go well for everyone near this storm. Please be careful before, 
during, and after, and when you are able, please come back here where you are 
loved, and let us know you are well.
