    Dear Martin,

    Happy Spring! You're photo essay has me wishing for another trip
    out of the city. The plans this year are to do something metropolitan
    for our vacation, but I'm about ready to roll in the grass and feel
    some nature.

    I'm glad to hear you're doing well, keeping busy. I still have some
    photos from our trip to send. I'll load them onto photobucket or
    yahoo!photos this week and send a link.

    Anyway, good to hear from you. Give George a scratch for us.

    Lance

    . The one you have marked "Forest Floor" is actually a toad. He's in the
    sunbeam in the middle of the trail.

    "Water in the Brook" will be Carissa's vote for removal.

    "Lance Cooking" I've always thought I looked a little "itchy" in this
    shot. Also there's a case of beer in the corner. Not classy, but you
    make the call.

    Thanks again,
    -Lance

    Hi Martin,
    I wanted to make sure to say Thank You for setting up a webpage with
    our photos on it. I'll send it to all of our friends. Maybe you can
    pick up some business.
    Thanks again!

    Lance--
    Thanks for your email. Trail toad and other correction made.
    Yes. Show your friends. I'd appreciate the business.

    NEW SUBJECT. You didn't seem to notice I "fixed" the photo of
    you looking at the trail notes. Fourpeaks is "non-smoking"
    so even though you were out-of-doors (perfectly OK of course)
    I thought it best to take the cigarette out of your mouth
    just for the photo.

    Hope you'll come back soon. New trail work this Spring make the
    walks even more fun.
    Martin
