Fooled You!

Plaza Azul Productions 2954 Plaza Azul Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505 ~ Office Of The Executive Director (505) 473-1954 "Semper Pothoegdus!" February 3, 1989 Dear Tommy. Fooled you! I waited to answer yours of January 18 until yours of January 31 arrived? In the response that follows. I will probably hop and ship about a bit between the two, and trust you to unscramble stuff. Your check is hereby returned, with thanks for your thoughtfulness. There is no Plaza Azul Productions bank account into which I might deposit it. Even if there were.
