This is ray holland using jon's machine>>>>> are you suggesting that maybe we
should trash all this lazer and bar code and computer keyboard trash and just
use a hammer and chisel to chip our thoughts and communications onto a slab of
stone? Is this what you suggest as a solution.???.... Then you should come over
here and type the numbers onto the machine.... It's a real blast..... Anyway...
I'm still waiting for an e-mail from you or your old man, but I guess you two
are busy pounding the ice.... or a slab of rock.... or a keyboard.... or....
Anyway... keep in touch<<<<<ray>>>>
Jon has no part in this other than looking over my shoulder
