Glad you're back, Traverso. It's like the Hotel California. "You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave."  :)

So true. I thought myself about leaving several times  --- the one time I did try to leave I changed my mind almost immediately.  :D

I would not be too worried about Pohjola's Daughter. She will find her way back to us in time.

How long does one have to be gone to be considered missing, I wonder...

After basically a 7-year break, you likely win the grand prize.

Welcome back!  What's new?

Thanks!

Mostly early retirement (woo-hoo!) and travel, which has allowed me to attend opera in Paris, hear orchestral music in Prague, visit the Sydney Opera House, and see the aurora borealis, Southern Cross, and lions and cheetahs and birds (oh my). I should have retired earlier!!!

What's new here (aside from the kind-of-disturbing emoticons)? And what's new with you?
