Thanks for your concern, dear friends. The recovery of the credit card slips and checks reduces the loss considerably. As Marc Horowitz put it: thank God for considerate thieves. Whoever grabbed the loot out of the cash box, kept the cash (except for the wee bit he/she failed to grasp), but was thoughtful enough to return with the non-negotiable junk anad sneak it into the side of a plastic bin containing such things as masking tape, an extra calculator, my index of songs on Folk-Legacy records (compiled by Mudcatter Karen K) and some other miscellaneous stuff. All we are out is a few hundred dollars in tens and twenties. We can live with that. Karen, who was helping us at the booth, in her wisdom, had carefully slipped a $50 bill and a $100 bill under a calculator in the bottom of the cash box to prevent our accidentally giving them to someone when making change. Those two bills were still there. Good thinking, Karen -- thanks!

Again, thanks to all of you for your concern. 'Tain't nearly as bad as it appeared to be at first. Whew!
