Awww, guys--thank you so much for the warm welcome! I've had a rough past few days--my work schedule was horrendous! I finished a shift in Waynesboro at 9pm and then had to be in Johnstown (a ~2hr 25min drive from my house) at 8am the next morning for a 13 hour shift!!!! They don't give you any breaks in the medical field! : ) Thankfully I have today and tomorrow off so I wanted to send a quick note this way. My plants never give me a break however and they've been demanding that I transplant them (into pots from their pellets) for oh, about the last couple weeks or so...

lelliott, lubliner and luinrina--thank you so much for the encouragement! It is one of my ultimate goals to finish my book on Harvey. I do have a first draft completely finished that includes him as a character. The main characters are: D.H. Hill, F.J. Porter and G.K. Warren (it's kind of a strange story which has a plot that's barely there, but my writing's more character-focused anyway. So you'll be disappointed if you're looking for an engaging plot!). It's rather a short novel, unfortunately (more like a "novella")--but at least it's complete!!!

Oh, and I would definitely love to join the D.H. Hill club! So glad to see there are other fans besides me! I love my little prickly Harvey! (I just love his sense of humor!! I think he was just too far ahead of his time. I remember reading somewhere that other people thought some of his comments were off-putting or something like that , but the stuff I've read from him I'm sitting there laughing at it thinking, what's wrong with these people? He has a great sense of humor!!!) He was also quite sentimental though--you can tell he had such a soft side by reading his letters, so tender and sweet sometimes... Awwww... okay, I'll stop gushing now : ) : )

polloco--Harvey was about average height for that time, reportedly 5'10" but supposedly he had a spinal ailment that often made him not stand to his full height (like kind of stooped or slouched over a bit), so in all likelihood he appeared shorter. He was rather thin, I believe ~145lbs or so if I'm recalling correctly.
