    Ken, thanks for the comment. I enjoyed the show and the dish I bought from you I gave to Tim Olson sensei in Seattle. He really liked it.
    Take care,

    Hi Marjie.
    What a nice looking mailer you send out.
    Hope your tea ventures are going great.

    I never got the chance to thank you for coming to our show at Ryokusuido and for the purchase.
    Much appreciated.
    On this unusually warm September day,
    My best,

    Ken Pincus
