Dear George:  Astonishing!  In driving past your home last year -- obtaining
the address from a local realtor -- we would have guessed perhaps 2
bedrooms, 1 and a half baths, family room, kitchen and perhaps a utility
area. Quite amazing that you have managed to put ELEVEN rooms into so small
a "footprint" -- wouldn't it be about 1200 or 1300 square feet? And so many
plants in the sweet little 'greenhouse' we saw makes us quite envious of
your ability to stretch space in such an astounding manner.

One other "small" matter. Several weeks ago you mentioned you were a
psychologist?  Please tell us:  in what Directory of Psychologists are you
listed? accredited? licensed?  Since your comment about being a
psychologist, we have searched all the usual directories without finding
your entry.  Perhaps you use another identity for these activities?

Dear George, you never cease to amaze, astonish, and astound us.  Have you
ever thought of a career in fiction writing? You have SUCH an imaginative

With warm greetings, we are Dr & Mrs David B. Vinson
