Gosh! <blush>

Now Dr. Karen, you know I would do just about anything for you short of
actual murder. I'm not sure I have reached the stratospheric heights of
knowledge attained by Howard Evans by any means, but I would give it the
good ol' college try at your request.

Besides, I always wanted to write something on ferret skeletons like
that found in "Miller's Anatomy of the Dog" (or "Illustrated Veterinary
Anatomical Nomenclature" or "The Anatomy of the Domestic Animals, vol.
1"), and I knew anything published in a book aimed at the general public
would have to be kept simple. I am getting really tired of using the
skeletal diagrams from the dissection guides for mink.

Your words are high praise. Thanks.

Bob C
