Prehistoric Times|Fall 2020 # 135
Mike, I received the latest issue of Prehistoric Times today. My family teases me that I get such a kick out of the fact that “the dinosaur magazine” has arrived in the mail. Thanks for doing what you do. It is a great distraction from other things that occupy us at the moment. Stay well, Tony Escobedo, Springfield, VA Thanks Tony, Ha, you think YOUR family teases you - I publish the dinosaur magazine! - editor

Dear Mike, I was sorry to read in the Editorial of my latest PT (which reached me a couple of days ago) that you had had to have surgery. I hope you are recovering well. If the States is anything like here, hospitals are very different places these days with very different protocols and procedures. (I had an eye operation a couple of weeks ago now.)

I always enjoy your magazine arriving. Yes, I get a lot of my model information these days on the internet. But I still love having a hard copy magazine arriving for me to pore over at leisure. (And nice to have the lenticular T. rex dinosaur stamps you attached too! I have very few dinosaur stamps, not a collection as such at all, but nice to have a few more to tuck away.) I'm glad to hear you donated to the Friends of Crystal Palace dinosaurs - I leapt for my computer too when the news about the latest damage broke. I was fortunate enough to see them in person getting on for two years ago now. Best wishes, Elizabeth Pendleton, Hertfordshire, UK

You are so sweet, Elizabeth. Yes I have recovered pretty much fully from my gall bladder operation. I can’t play the piano or run the 4 minute mile now but then I couldn’t do it when I still had my gall bladder either, ha. Like I said in my editorial last issue the worst part was staying in the hospital for almost a week afterward. I had a great room to myself and super great nurses and doctors but it wasn’t home, ya know? Oh, and yes, everyone, please go to Cpdinosaurs. org and donate a little paypal to save the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs in England. We can’t lose that site - editor

Hello Mike, I’m enclosing my payment for another great year of prehistoric stories and facts. Of course it’s also a great way to keep up with the latest collectibles. The Yale Peabody Museum in New Haven, CT is closing for three years for extensive renovations. They are going to rearticulate the mostly complete fossil of Brontosaurus. I’m told it will be the prominent specimen in the great hall. I have been a member there for many years. I hope I can withstand the fossil withdrawal until they reopen. I can always keep up with all the latest fossil news thanks to PT, All the best, Rae Zabit, Goshen, CT
