        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.

            OK...I guess I didn't see the original. I did talk with Phillip about
            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!
