Connor is in Mrs. Meyer's first grade class at St. Pius X Elementary in Appleton, Wisconsin: I know how much you love to draw. I love to draw too. We too must be cousins and Buddy and your cousins are the famous radio Irish Dancers!
Tomie: I'm not sure we're cousins, but maybe you're right. As to the famous radio Irish Dancers, I think you're confusing the Dancers with my mother's cousin, Morton Downey, who was well known from the radio as an Irish tenor (singer).
Tomie: Thanks for writing, cuz!
