Sorry about not changing the subject line last time, I'm still a bit
shook, I don't know all the details, but someone must have been there
when the fire started or we could never have saved virtually
everything. God takes care of fools and young children. :-) Anyway,
we may just have new permanent quarters lined up, but until things
get settled we will be at Besant Lodge, a grand old building,
originally a theater. If parking weren't such a problem, we could
stay there forever, but parking is a problem, and the bus does not
run frequently, though it lets you out right in front of the door!
We will live with it until something more permanent is firmed up.
