Folks, I had time to think about this on the train home, and while it bothers me that Mr. Paton seems to think I'm a bootlegger, I wouldn't want to put him in an awkward position. He doesn't have any way to know better, not knowing me at all, and if he's as suspicious he sounded about a stranger, well, that's the way it goes. It's none of my business what he thinks, it takes all kinds in this world, and everyone has a different notion about how things should work. He's entitled to protect his livelihood, and from what he wrote I suspect he may not have the right to post the words without permission even if he *weren't* worried about how it might cost him in the long run. If I read between the lines correctly.
Mr. Paton, if you happen to read this in time -- let's call the whole thing off. Just pretend I never asked. And if it helps you to sleep, to the best of my recollection I've paid for all the Folk Legacy materials I have.
Barbara, whoever and wherever you may be, thanks for the kind thoughts and blessings -- and blessings back at ya'.
