  1. Hi George,

    Glad to hear you guys had a great time out here. I love Disneyland and I love the Magic Kingdom. I hope you come out again soon.

  2. The Brush with Disney Book is one of the most beautiful dust jackets I have ever come across. I would use the word alluring but I am uncertain if that can apply to something that is not alive. Maybe it is alive and that is why I find it so compelling.

  3. Ordered my “Designing Disney” by Hench last night. Thanks for the Amazon link – found it new for $28.00. If this pans out to be true I will consider it a steel.
