Rusty - NO! NO! NO! You can't quit writing those columns. We all enjoy them too much for you to do that.

Do you have something else planned? Are you concentrating on writing your books? Whatever you will be doing, I want you to know how much I enjoyed reading your columns. They are a window into the more innocent and gentle past for most of us. Some of your columns were funny, some were adventurous, some were sad or even heartwrenching, but they were all extremely enjoyable to read. Thank you so much for sharing a part of you with us. Thank you so much for the enjoyment you gave to me. I feel as if I know you because of it, and that you are a very good man.

Thank you.
