Hi, I read your article in the Post Standard today. I am from the Canastota High School, Design Drawing for Production 2 class. I think you are doin a great thing because you make your house feel more your own when you fix it up. I think it is sort of cool because you are fixing up a house so close to where I live(Galavotti Place). I know it will look great. Thanks bye.

Mindy and Teague,
We read your article in the Post Standard. I am the Technology teacher at the local high school. My class wants to take a walking field trip to look at your house. I have 15 high school students. E-mail me if you think tkis would be acceptable.

Hi Mindy and Teague~
Not only are you fixing the house to your own personal taste but the recognition of all your hard work is great fun too!!! I really enjoyed the pictures of our house on Teague’s website. Keep up the good work….I check in all the time.

Holy cow. This will prove to you how little ‘Stota is.

I came back to this page to get the URL to show my mom your article, and I started to read the comments. Ummm…

The first comment is from a girl who I used to babysit–our families went to the same church back in the day.

And Mr. Lasnicki was MY shop teacher… and was still at the school when I went back to substitute teach after college… and he’s still there now! (And even though I’m almost 28, he’s still MISTER Lasnicki, of course.) Super-nice guy–you gotta let the class come tromp through your house!

That’s too funny.

Look–you’re Canal Town celebs now!

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
