      Dear Chris,

      I can assure you that Andy does not have a computer -- they rarely
      answer the phone ("And don't show up too early ANY morning . . .")

      Let me know if you need them; I'm up that way once a month or so (we've
      got prisons all over the state) and I'll drop in the next time if you do and
      sort through his piles of things and get the nicest set he has. Again, the
      Plexi will be crazed (still with the paper on it) and brittle but it was
      easy enough to have it replaced with tempered glass when I did it.

      Best wishes,

      Thank you for that Kurt. DO you know if Mr. Wiley is available on e-mail?
      Perhaps he would be willing to look for a pair and ship 'em to me.

      Otherwise, I may indeed be getting in touch with you to beg this service of
      you. It would be a wonderful upgrade tot he old girl (SUNDANCE - not
