Wow - thanks for reminding me to write. We were heading to a bar mitzvah in Boston and two weeks ago, the boy who was all set to be a man, was suddenly offered a new liver -- he had been in line for a transplant for a while. Everything was moved back to the weekend of April 20, 2018, so I won't be in Boston now, but I hope then.

Also our Toronto-Boston Air Canada tickets were non-refundable. They were willing to give us $168 credit, but we'd have to pay $200 transfer fee to collect the $168 credit. No thank you.

And I learned that airport taxes were half the $168 - and they will refund me $84 taxes, but not automatically. I filled in a form and will now wait and wait.

sothundara, elizabeth, _refugee_ and humanodon onward.

Elizabeth, I actually will be in Montreal on October 19th, but I don't think I have any time for a meetup. Maybe you can meet me at an event on Thursday night though. Let's IM. I'm amazed by your filmmaking and travelogues.

Chances are I'll still be in town doing the same old thing next April too. Keep us posted!

works perfectly

Shucks . . . Well, I'm in Boston for the foreseeable future, so come on by whenever. I hope that the boy you were coming to see has recovered by then. If one is to be a man, it's best to be a healthy man!

I won't be back in Montreal until November actually :( That's too bad, would have loved to meet, even briefly.
