Well, a neat thing happened today. I received from Valerie her print and one from Les. thank you both.

The great thing about this coming so late was that I don't think anybody expected it. So it's turned out to be Christmas in May!

Valerie, the thing I remember about you was how understated and modest you were about her work. Then when you pulled out your prints, of course eveyone was blown away. This print just sent is really fine, and I am proud to own it. Thanks again.

Mahalo and Aloha to Les. I now have a modest collection of your work.

Until our paths cross again.
