dear richard, or is it charles?, very nice text, a bit of clean air while sitting here in my wife's office. and i'm sorry about your dog (which dog run did it happen at?). and i have to agree with you about rachel in the last "friends" episode. please do find a picture - a polaroid is fine, if it's easier. your description is so clear in my mind that i want to compare it to an actual photograph. thanks. ben. if you can, mail to: ADA WEB, attn: ben kinmont, 32 west 22nd st. 6th floor, new york, n.y. 10010. bye!
