Yes, William. I agree. As I age, I get a few more wrinkles, my skin a bit more thin, and I'm feeling a bit more frayed around the edges. By the way...I've lost my dust jacket :D

So that’s what the flap’s about. Well, you’ll always be perfect-bound to me. I’d put my signature on it.

Thanks, William. I needed that :)

Wonderful comment you have made with that photo.

My pleasure, Jan. Remember, it goes both ways.

Thanks, John. Book lovers that we are, I’m glad there are words between us.
