Hey Walt,

I got them this afternoon and haven't had a chance to let you know. I'll give them a try and let you know how they work (provided it gets cold enough. It was in the mid 60's and partly cloudy today). Did I send you money? I don't remember it if I did. Tell me how much, again, and your address.

And thanks for thinking of your pals on the list.

John Dunn in Napa Valley
