Cousin Dan,

I thought it would be very hard to locate you.

What a surprise, you almost have as many web mentions than our very distant cousin, the late but not lamented Dirt McGirt.

Several years ago you sent me copies of your books.

Now that I have done a book, nearly by myself, I’d like to send you a copy.

If you will email me a mailing address, I’ll send you a copy.
