Great hearing from you after so long.  Sorry about my prolonged absence from 
djml.  I've had 2 major surgeries in the last 3 months and may have more to 
come.  I figure I'd better start writing more on the list just so I can get 
some of my memories stated while I still have them.

By the way, how'd you personally like Woody?  I always thought him to be one 
of the good guys, even though his business instincts were as skilled as the 
tall blonde vocalist that sat in for one chorus of "Valentine" at my New 
Year's gig last night.  She wasn't invited back for an encore.  Dick
