FW: stuffed plush fred (in regards to Plushie Fred?)

This is the original e-mail from ibotty about all of this. If he is still on this list he should reply.  Or I have his e-mail address somewhere.  He has some links to pictures also but I don't think they were ever ordered.


p.s. I have the rest of the e-mails in the thread but this one says it all pretty much.
