Oh my, oh my.
Thanks Peter. That is actually better than the attempts
the pilot does for the Prince in the book. Your's has the
amorous looks of Spring madness.
I am appreciative.

You're welcome. I don't think I've seen Le Petit Prince in almost fifty years. I read Vol de nuit a couple of years later.

Oh! I just discover Le Petit Prince online at http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks03/0300771h.html. Je le lirai, peut-ętre ce soir.

But did you draw your avatar, Jon?

Pardonez-moi, Pierre mais> it must be Monday on a Friday.
I knew there was something special about the sheep, but I
could not quite grasp it, and am still having trouble, as I
said, Monday on Friday. So you had to spell it out for me
so I'd notice. Please continue, because I like it, but am
still so thick headed today. Must be the weather, temp dropped
to 40 this AM.

Let's see if I can carry this too far!
Oo – earthquake. I wonder what the magnitude was.
4.0, 45 miles from here.

Wow: hope there were not any injuries.
Keep us informed. All we get is Osama. I have to tune into
the BBC or France24 to get world news, even news in Alaska.

I looked and I saw it for a moment and then I'd lose it again.
Sort of like those things similar to "Where's Waldo" where you
stare and stare and finally a 3D thing jumps out at you.
THANKS FOR THE SHEEP

It won't be on the news. 4.0 shook the house, but nothing even fell. If you were in a car you wouldn’t know it happened. Probably no one at, say, the high school or the hospital would have noticed.

Just one of those everyday thing, huh?
We don't get them here. Not too far from the New Madrid
fault down in Missouri, but I've not ever felt one, tho' they
say they happen. Probably we'd think it was a train or truck
or some such thing. Glad it was not too serious.
