Viewer Comment Continued from Home Page

Here in my area, you have just finished Episode 142, which was very interesting and informative.  Thank you - I really enjoyed it and learned a lot from you.  My thanks also to your camera operators.  They showed this whole episode from a perspective that allowed the viewer to see just exactly what you were doing (from a close range that showed details) which made for better insight than being there personally would have allowed. Again, thank you.  I really love your programs and admire your expertise and willingness to share your abilities with others.

Bless your heart for taking the time to reply.  I can imagine how busy you must be.  It is always the case, I believe, that the most productive people are the ones who find the time to do those little extra things that really mean so much.
 
I would be very happy for you to use my comments in whatever way you choose.  I am just so very thrilled that I have the privilege of being your student every Saturday at noon.   There's no way of knowing (unless everyone should write) of how many rays of sunshine you bring into homes via your program. 
Thank you again!!, Trudy
