To Everyone at Hayden Place!

It is with great pleasure and satisfaction that I am even writing a letter to you this year. Pleasure from watching the amazing second season on Once and Again; pleasure from talking with other O and A "obsessors" on the ABC O and A Board; pleasure from making lasting friendships with other people who love and appreciate the effort and genius that is packed into each and every episode. Satisfaction from knowing the third season will have twenty-three wonderful episodes; satisfaction from completing the wreath (My husband is building the box as I write this!); satisfaction from seeing the first three episodes of this season and loving each one of them!

It was quite a thrill (and honor) last year when you graciously hung the wreath in Lily's attic. Even before we saw that wreath on television, this second wreath was in the planning stage. In fact, the day after the first episode aired, I received an email from an O and A friend in California saying she had found a mini Monopoly Board for the wreath! It was fun to receive emails after each episode with suggestions for items for this wreath!

I have included a list of items that are on the wreath -- more or less in chronological order beginning under the bow. (Please fluff it up a little bit -- it was pretty when it left here!) Some of the items were purchased, some were handmade, and others were commandeered from toy boxes or personal collections.

Here is a list of the contributors:
Lyn -- Sue --
Dor -- Paula --
Sheila -- Marco & Mrs. Marco -
Karen -- Judy --
Carol -- Sisko, Mrs. Sisko -
Trish -- Linda --
Catherine -- Ellen --
Bonnie -- Angela --
Jeanne -- Marc --
Eileen -- Peter --
Shir -- Annie --
Phyllis -- JT --
Kristi -- Jan --

Please know that we "obsessors" have such a good time talking about each and every episode, and each and every detail! Sometimes, it is mind- boggling that we have watched the same episode and have such varying degrees of appreciation and understanding of and for the content.

Wherever you take the Mannings and the Sammlers this year, we, the truly obsessed, will be right there along with you, enjoying the emotional roller coaster ride. Thank you for Once and Again -- finally an "adult" show with real people, real situations, and real romance!

Please accept this wreath as a small token of our love and affection for the show and for everyone who works so diligently to keep the high quality we have come to expect. You all are amazing!
