Thank you harpgirl:

Originally, I did not understand your reference....but Thomas Pynchon turns up as the author the of lot 49 when searched by google.

I like/read Pynchon - but never read his early stuff ... I will search it out ... read and relate.

Uncle Barney had (took, conned, finageled, frauded) many folks (his wife/sons included).... but I sincerely doubt one was me, or my family. (He taught me "self-hypnosis" which was good and bad (very bad - in retrospect) and had sighted aliens, who he believed, were from beyond our earth's atmosphere.

My only regret - is that I had not begun recording interviews - however - a faint hope says there might be some old R2R 2.5's.


HarpGirl you are like a pre-used damp tampon - let the flow go without unwanted infections.
