Hey Rosemary,

I am most upset about what happened to the pond :(  I feel for my poor 
goldfish, I almost ran down to the pet store to buy a tank to keep them in 
until it cleared back up.  I moved a couple of babies to a tub filled with 
rainwater and threw in some water hyacinths to hopefully tide them over.  I 
can't believe I was begging for rain three weeks ago!

I too would like to know if anyone has heard from Joyce Schillen and how 
about John Mertus?

Hey guys. This is kind of neat - everyone sharing what they're doing this
summer. Are there more stories? Myra - SORRY about your flood. Jeez. I've
had water damage here from storms too - and it's a nightmare.
