Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] New Hand Puppet and Costume Puppet Characters

Your puppets and costumes are really nice! I have made many myself.....I
wish you luck in your endeavors. I tried while I lived on the Eastern
Shore, but just couldn't make much there. I was the Easter Bunny for 18
years, in a costume I made when I first got married......


"The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do."
-Walter Bagehot

"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the
choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape
ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make
are ultimately our own responsibility."-----Eleanor Roosevelt

"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are
dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do
it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many

-Michael Landon

We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are.

> The stork has a fully articulable beak, operated by a cable control
