Meanwhile (deep sigh), we have guests from the USA.
When Lady Magnon (left) was living in Caracas Venezuela, Jane (right) was her best friend.They would make mud pies together, play together with their puppies, and generally do what small girls do.
The last time they met was about 25 years ago in Monterey California, where Jane and her husband live.
Jane has been on a singing tour of Spain with her choir, and popped in for a short stay whilst en route to Switzerland.
Lawrence, Jane's husband (middle), is the author of 'In Defence of Chaos: The Chaology of Politics Economics and Human Action'. Don't you just love that word 'Chaology'... the science of Chaos. Wiki will tell you of all his other exploits.
It's only a short visit, but it's great to see Lady M with one of her childhood buddies; musing over old times. It's like they'd never been apart.
