Subject: RE: Art T. to be off line for a while
Howdy folks.   It's me, Art. I'm at the library here in Peru (Illinois--USA). It is tuesday---October 21st, '03

Just went to the eye doctor and I am dilated. But I had to stop in and say hello !! Doing good. Have read 3 books since signing off. A short bio with his letters of ED RICKETTS ---the marine biologist who was the model for DOC in John Steinbeck's smaller superb work titled CANNERY ROW---always has been one of my favorites. Also read Arthur Schlesinger's (hell, I can't remember the title right now---but it was quite insightful). And am about to start a book titled "1929" --- a novel about Bix Beiderbecke and his era. Good reviews prompte me in that direction.
But Chris is working on the machine----and 75 others where he works. So it may be a while before I get back here regular like.

Thanks for your nice comments. And, yes, my 2 records for Sandy and Caroline at Folk Legacy ( are now available from them only as CDs. But you already knew that, right? ;-)

Will talk to you later when I am undilated.

Love to all,

Art Thieme
