    hmmm... the link opened to used paperbacks. I tried a "Hoodat" search but got no results. I realize he is probably not Hoodat there. I'll try again.

    I should explain that I thought up the story when someone ordered a book I had listed and I couldn't find it anywhere I looked. I used the name Vunderbar there. It used to be a great site for swapping books but when they started adding fees it was cheaper to buy the books from Amazon so I dropped out. I'm not listed as a member there any more. Glad you enjoyed the story. I had fun writing it. I used the clipped sentence style favored in journals by explorers at the turn of the century.

    Glad you are still enjoying it. Really a beautiful flower. Too bad the plant isn't fertile. It would be fun to plant some from seed but alas.
