Dear Don and List...

Now I know the true meaning of the term "brainstorm."

With reference to the gum-logged Aunt Maud, the seafood aroma
of the golden paste would seen to indicate that John Shade's abusive aunt
was suffering from a Gardnerella infection.

Maybe at this point it would be appropriate to recall how "Old McNab" used to delight in setting traps for the over-
sophisticated -- be they chess problem aficionados ot literary ferrets.

Wherever VN and Vera are currently chasing butterflies, be it in Ardis or Zembla, I bet they're having a hilarious time,
tuning in to the recent postings.

I can just imagine his smile...
