Hi Marilyn

Spike Jones (who I have known for ages) wrote to me about your being banged up.

Ouch.  Hope you recover entirely.

Hope they let you have a laptop.  If they do, you might dig into the
news of the day, the discovery that a blinking star (Tabby's star) has
15 like it in a tight cluster.

Best wishes,

Keith Henson
