          That's because she's changed the text. I sent her a note sometime in the
          middle of the night with some URLs on pattens and slops, and she sent me a
          note saying she was going to change all the text based on what I'd sent her.

          Let's just say that if you know geta, the original commentary was... um...
          humorous. <G>

            Maybe we should all up the price a buck or two. As I told her in my e-mail, I really do think these
            belong in a museum, and they should get a price that reflects that.

              the whole thing last night and, if I should by some remote chance win
              the bid, I plan to check with the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore (has
              a FABULOUS Medieval collection) to see if they would like to have
              them. If so, we will donate them. However, I suspect it is highly
              unlikely that I will get them.

              See you soon, I hope!
