Don't say I didn't warn you. Actually, it's also a post harking back to the days when the only comments (if I got 'em at all) were from members of the family. This one's from my sister-in-law, in case you're wondering. It must've been her turn that week. Oh how they love it now that other people write responses to my posts and they no longer have to do it. In fact, they probably don't even read it. But back then, a blog-post was a real event and I'd 'phone people up to remind them to have a look. Stats (if I knew about such things) probably ran to, oh... dozens. Per month.
How times change. Actually, I've just thought of a problem. Should anyone want to comment on the archived post, they won't be able to. Because since then I've installed DISQUS and closed the old Blogger comments. So, once you've had a peek, you'll have to come back here if you've anything to say. Which you probably haven't. After all, you're on holiday too, right?
Anyway, see you again soon for more
