One of my treasures is a set of placemats made from his '63 catalog. A
real beauty and a delight.

I bought 75 raffle tickets to be sure of having a good chance to win it.
I got writer's cramp from putting down my name so many times. I have
seldom been so relieved as when hearing my name called at the raffle
(Region 15 spring meeting a few years ago).

Gerry, in muggy Los Angeles
