Hello, hello, OD, what is up! To think If I didn’t randomly check my old email account, I’d never have known OD was up again. To all my old friends, please allow me to say Salut! Hopefully I will also meet many new friends on this new journey. Looking at my last entry, I see it was dated two months before my father died – that is another entry. Suffice it to say that much has happened in the ‘gnome’s life and I’ll be writing more soon. For now, I look forward to catching up with old friends.
