The episode I was included in was a year ago. It was the final episode in his twenty fifth year. He does twelve or thirteen a year, I guess. I have DVD copies, but I do not know how coypright laws apply. If I can figure all that out, I might be able to send you a copy. Thanks for your interest!

        Is the episode available for sale? I'd be happy to purchase a copy. I guess I'll have to see if the Woodwright Shop has a website. (But if you have the info about this, please drop a note!) Mical
