    I haven't been doing any writing here on B/R. I like coming back and seeing what all is going on. I have such good memories of the old gang who used to write for B/R. Change isn't easy, and I know that money has to be made to keep things up and running. I have thought about writing here again, but I know there is a process that I would have to go through.

    Grandma, where art thou been ???

    I thought you had abandoned me... but maybe much like your avatar, you are ever-present. It snowed here last night in Boston and I can't remember how I had the strength to walk home... so I went back and noticed two sets of footprints in the snow for a couple of blocks, then only one set... It was you who carried me home.

    Thanks Granny - don't ever disappear on me for that long again... I was starting to have bad thoughts.
