"Oh, jeez, Rob, don't remind me of that. Not sure whether it was the Boone's Farm or the Southern Comfort that did me in that night. I was much younger then! "

Thanks fot the welcome! Man, you ARE old! I don't even want to think about how long I've been writing my column. I figured I had a half-dozen topics tops, but they just keep coming. I'm glad you enjoy it.

I take that very kindly, sir!

I appreciate you taking the time to tell me that. In fact, I'm right in the middle of preparing the next Deck Log entry when I took a moment to check my new e-mail.

I imagine all of us leave a bigger wake than what we realise. But it's nice to, every once in a while, have somebody tell us so. I'm glad you enjoy the column. Many moons ago, when Rich Lane approached me with the idea, my first concern (after wondering if there was enough material to keep a Silver-Age column going for long) was if anybody would have any interest in reading it.

The hit-counters tell me that somebody's out there reading it, but it's an especial treat to get a note like yours. I completely understand the business about not saying anything unless you have something to say. In reflexion, I'm the same way. Not only on threads here, but I frequent other sites regularly, and have yet to post a comment---because there's nothing I can add to the commentary.

Much obliged for the kind words!

Asked if you were willing to "friend" me some time ago, but haven't heard back yet. Was it something I said?
