So nice to see you back, Don! I was starting to worry. I really like Alexis's haiku - so much emotion conveyed through simple, concise observation. - Mark

Enjoyed these. Good hearing Alexis read on Friday.

Bart, very enjoyable, before, during and after. Laurie was fascinated by our whacked conversation about the past! Don
