    And best wishes and much gratitude to you too!

    I just read somewhere that you live in Harltand Vt. I grew up in Hanover, and my grandparents lived all their lives in Hartford. I feel a special affinity to the place, and so with delight I think of you there. I’m in Portland Maine now; also deliciously beautiful with the ocean, but the rugged and beautiful Maine woods are very different from the NH/VT woods.

    Thank you again for the wonderful work that you share with us so regularly. Makes my day every day a post comes through, and of course, your book is fabulous.

    Warmly, Libbet Cone
