  2. Yes Rose, I’m certain I mailed you some, on more than one occasion,
    and remember your comments. But don’t trouble yourself to search
    for it. The original was made in 2007 and covers many years. The
    re-release I made today, with wonderful new salmon coloured
    cover paper, includes plenty to mail you more to dish at your
    next reading, or to people you wish to see it, and nothing prevents
    unstapling one to make more as needed, either of us able. Today’s
    batch are sublime, my dudes on Spadina next to the beer store
    have a brand spankin new machine, digital perfect, looked
    better than origs!! The Siamese Cats have their gleam back,
    the cover’s more readable despite the salmon background,
    the whole thing is a much needed success, as I’ve been hoarding
    remaining copies for a year or so. Now there are more.

    Thank you Rose, for the awesome writing and correspondence
    and photos
