Mary, Oh, I am so very glad you chose to mention slates. I get in trouble on every computer-related list I'm on because I tell people that I'm a slate collector. At present, I have about twenty slates, and I'm always open to more. If, therefore, anyone on this list is tired of their slate and doesn't want it anymore, contact me, and I'll give it a fine and very loving home. I hear about people's love for their guide dogs; well, now you know the extent of the love I have for my little slaties. If anyone knows where I can get one of the old New York Point slates, you can contact me as well. Thanks!!! By the way, this is a light-hearted message, so, as I always say when I talk about slates, I know you don't use one, I don't care whether you use one, but if you have one, I want it!!! You all have a blessed week, and thanks for reading this little amusing tidbit!
