      Chris,

      Your writing returns to its strange comic charm. Here the conversation must end for me. May those who take you seriously derive some benefit from your work. As for myself, I need to provide that explanation to the list I recently promised. Hoping that members here will excuse me if in the meantime I do not respond to any enquiries directed my way. Mental stability is difficult to maintain. I apologise again for ill effects this may have on anyone who reads. If an explanation for the unbelievable might have been provided earlier, I should have been glad to oblige. The fact is, that anger impedes much of my good intent.

      Louise
