My apologies, Andro!
This was the longest I've ever stayed away from Andromeda, except for a sojourn late last year. My last rendezvous before now was way back on Sunday.
On a different note, it's a very warm feeling when strangers visit my blog to post sweet memories from the distant past and I'm constantly amazed at how touching such accounts can be.
People have a lot more in common than is readily visible.
