I've hardly had time to pack my cases, I've been inundated with phonecalls wishing me well, private messages, e-mails, comments on the blog - far too many to individually reply to at the moment.
Well, my plane does leave in 3 1/2 hours...
So I'd like to broadcast a general thanks now, and will send individual thanks when I have a little more time.
Special thanks to thsoe who have hit my tip jar to defray my $25,000 medical expenses (so far). Every little bit, even $5 helps, and some of the amounts were considerably more than that!
All the best to everyone, and there's a greater than 99% chance I'll be back blogging in due course. I might even manage a few posts from the hotel before surgery, with luck. Otherwise there'll be a 2-week delay or so.
My thanks once more, and best wishes to all my readers.
