Oh, ye readers of little faith. I would never quit without saying goodbye. Just a small enforced hiatus. I'll be back (with more copious apologies and explanations, and heaps more blogging) very, very soon. A thousand apologies, especially to all my favorite bloggers, none of whose blogs I've been able to read lately. Miss you guys. Back soon.

forty-two years later

I rang my father just now and he said he was just about to crack open a bottle of champagne with my mum. I wondered why.
"Elfter neunter," he explained in German.
"9/11?" I said, completely confused as to why they would be celebrating September 11.
"Our wedding anniversary," he reminded me. Geez, what a day to have it on.
Wow. 42 years. Congratulations, Oma and Opa.
