Thanks Steve,
It was great to hear that you had such a fine time at Mobot. I
also did when I visited there. Tom, Peter and Jill arrived in Tampa about
7 pm on tuesday (they spent monday at the Atlanta Botanical Garden) and
spent two nights at our house with Joyce and I. We talked late into the
night on tuesday and on wednesday it was PLANT day. Peter went through my
greenhouse and labeled all the Asian aroids while Tom worked through the
120 or so Anthuriums that I brought back from a collecting trip to Ecuador
last March.

Hi Dick,

Enjoyed your travelogue very much!! There's no way to communicate the
frenzied nature of their 'landing'. Aren't they wonderful people?!

Had to do a fern club program last night. Had a post from Donna. She won't
be able to go after all--to Miami. Heard about a plane crash in Sumatra this
morning. Can't help worrying.

Wonderful rain began about 6am!!

See you in Miami
