"My name is Dave M**, I'm 28 years old. I went to elementary school in Canaan, VT. About 20 years ago I think you came to my school to tell a few stories. I would like to buy recordings of them but I only remember very vague details. I was hoping you could help me with the names and then of course if you had them available for purchase I would buy them.
"The first story was about a man and his pregnant wife and her craving for radishes. The only ones available were over a wall in a witch's yard.
"The next was a story where a man finds himself in a pit or well with a eagle and needed to ride him out of the well or pit with bits of meat towards the top he runs out of meat and needs to cut off a part if himself to throw so the eagle will continue to fly.
"There was also one about a witch the used snuff that caused her to sneeze.
"(I hope you're the person I am thinking of or these story fragments would seem insane)
"I would be interested in any of the stories you were telling during that time, late 80's early 90's.
"I just wanted you to know that those stories have stuck with me for over 20 years. I couldn't tell you anything about a TV show I had seen that long ago. If those stories I had mentioned are available I hope to pass the on to my children someday."
