Home again
30 July 1997

We're back from our traveling vacation -- conducted mostly under conditions of "limited telecommunications" -- and hope to soon dig out from under all the email messages, catalogs, and review books that accumulated in our absence.

We did, however, have the opportunity to visit various bookstores in Colorado, Illinois, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, South Dakota, and elsewhere. Special thanks in that regard are owed to Bob and Judy Ruman at Articles of War in Skokie, Illinois for their kind hospitality. Theirs was truly the crown jewel of all the shops we visited. Don't miss it.

Meanwhile, sorry for any inconvenience our pleasant journey may have caused our visitors.
