Hello everyone! I feel I’ve been away quite as long as Grizel. Hope everyone is doing well and coping during the pandemic. Hopefully it will soon be over.

Who’s still around who remembers me? :D

I'm here, too.

I imagine Freudesheim is sufficiently large for suitable social distancing. Has anybody told Bruno about that?

It is shocking that my most recent Gather attendance was in *cough* 2010, but yes, Mia, I even remember whodunnit in that mystery you organized. (Sadly, I can't remember what she'd done.)

I was thinking one might work out post-pandemic, though too-much-ocean-in-the-way is always a complication.

It’s nice to hear from everyone!

Kathy, it’s such a regret that I lost that murder mystery when my laptop died! It was based on The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie and I changed the characters and setting.

Our Gathers were so fun. I’d love to go to another one, after the pandemic.

We didn’t have much conversation but I remember you! I enjoyed the 2013 gather, was very sad there were not more.

ETA and I enjoyed your stories too, of course!

Hi! I remember you as well Mia. Popped in to read a drabble in the archives and come hunting to see what's happening. Hope everyone is ok.
