I've been a bit scarce lately and there are several reasons for it, some of which were revealed in recent posts---friends visiting, travel, a big party here on Sunday to celebrate the publication of a friend's masterpiece book. Most important is the fact that my firstborn child, my daughter K, is having a baby soon! It's her first and we're all on tenterhooks, wondering when baby J is going to make his appearance.
