Only just seen this. Congratulations, James!

I do miss you being a miserable loser, though.

This romance, marriage, and family as about as un-gradual as you could imagine. Seems like it all happened within the span of one Al Stewart track.

I'm truly happy for you, James. Hope one day I'll get to meet some of these people you're associating with.

All the best,
J

And to you, also, Lighthouse!!

And you reckon it seems rapid to you guys? :(

Not quite an Al Stewart track, but definitely the Twin Peaks version of Nantucket Sleighride.

Thanks for best wishes everyone, all goes well, so far. Not sleeping, drinking or any of the usual staples of life, but hey-ho. Happy as larry really.

Congrats Lighthouse too, hope all is well with you and yours.

As we get further away from Halloween, you might want to stop scaring her, then.

Me too. Great news. Well done.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.
