Message: Dear Friend,

I got your card O.K. I would like to have that place up there but I can’t come up yet for 2 weeks.  I don’t suppose you can wait that long so I guess you had better get some one else.  I am sorry I can’t come any sooner but I can’t.  –Claude

Valuing = Supporting

Publishing HI every day is more than just a ’labor of love‘ (though we do love it), but takes hundreds of hours each month to create. If you are entertained, inspired, better informed, feel more connected with Indy or just value what you discover here, please consider becoming a supporting member with a recurring monthly donation.

Or, become a one-time supporter with a single donation in any amount you choose.

More old-fashioned? Checks or money orders may be sent to: at P.O. Box 2999, Indianapolis, IN 46206

Thank you and HI-5! Love, The HI Team
