By now, we're well into the season of steam shows and thresherees, and lots is going on in the world of steam! Many of you have written to Iron Men Album for this issue, and we have some great letters from readers to share.

Here in the office, we have been making some improvements to our website. If you haven't 'visited' us there for awhile, please do so at www.stemgas.com.

Our directory has proven very popular this year, and as we write this column, the books are nearly 'all' as we say in Lancaster County when something is fully depleted!

Just a little housekeeping reminder, before we move onto the letters. If you move, please let us know your change of address as soon as possible. Some people assume that when they move, magazines are automatically forwarded with their first class mail. That is not the case, so if you want to be sure to get all of your issues, you need to let us know before you move!

Another thing that might interest you is the matter of sending us stories and photos by e-mail. We are able to receive your manuscripts by e-mail and welcome your sending them that way. Pictures are not always as sharp when sent to us as digital files, as our printer's scanner generally produces a better reproduction than most home scanners can. And now, on to the mail:

STEVE AND MARGIE HESTON provided this story about Jay Sigafoos at last year's Old Thresher's, in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. 'We surprised Jay one morning with a joke on his Avery engine, there was a banner that read 'Jay Reeves Retrieval Service,' and a sign that said, 'Beware of the Dog,' and a T-shirt and a fire hydrant. The enclosed picture shows Jay with his folks, Chuck and Mary Ann.'
