Hi Chuck,  The cross giving Chubby Cheeks yielded either olive
seedlings like the one in the picture or plicatas.  Soft Air breeds
a plicata and not a glaciata.  As I said in the talk discussion, it 
appears to me to be a glaciata except that it does have those few 
plicata marks in the heart.  Oh, the mystery of hybridizing.  Chubby 
does yield some striped seedlings and also some recessive white or 
white glaciatas if you will.  I have always been intrigued with the 
recessive whites, but they have never had the quality that would
them to be introduced.  It would be great if you have time and 
inclination to work out the Punnett square distributions.  Like 
everyone else, you have plenty to occupy your time, so don't feel 
obliged to get right on this.  It is 
strange that I am still finding things to do with Chubby Cheeks after 
all this time.  New ideas keep popping into mind that I hadn't
of previously and since CC usually gives nice form and substance in 
breeding, I figure, why not?
