      Ms. Petruska:

      Thank you.

      You would be right @ home on the Epiphany in Tarpon
      Springs, FL. You should consider a visit some
      January.

      And the Innes paintings l@ the Universalist church are
      also worth a look:

      Consider it.

      Regards,
      Chuck Wychunas
