I broke my promise but as a nagging feeling warned me ... pas du internet chez moi
I am back where I first began ... a fitting return I suppose ... still trying to sort out if my problem is my computer or my brain, so in the meantime I have returned to the little bar, the one computer in town with public access and one hour to sort through a couple hundred messages and an update for you.
My return was planes trains automobiles redux, only with three times the suitcases.
My welcome home was "formidable", all I hoped for and more. It is ever so nice to know one has been missed.
The dogs are A OK and there is no heat to speak of in my house with weather in the teens. So, of course that is the order of the day. I will explain more in time ...
Sleep and thus proper thought patterns and a good deal of my language progress have been diminished but I shall persevere.
I am home, in every sense of the word, and anxious to share more. Soon.
