Thank you; I'm glad to be back. And I'm glad that you didn't think that I was attacking you.

I'm also glad to hear that the streams are up to fishing levels again. Actually, I'm extremely glad to hear that. Too cold to snorkel? That hardly seems believable, given this endless summer and drought. Wonderful!

Yes, the drought lingers on here. Walking through the yard crunches all the dead grass. It's pretty amazing.
