      Have I mentioned how much I love my set of etchings? They're all framed and in a nice cluster on the wall, being enjoyed daily.

      Everything arrived in perfect order and we are enjoying your work just as much as we admire the other works of yours that just happen to reside where we do.

      I am so glad to know that you and family are safe and sound as is your house and environs. The images are something. Thanks for sending them. Love to Cara, Mirabel and Will.

      Thanks to the September quake, Christchurch was stuffed with instrumentation. It looks as though shaking in the city center was about double the force of gravity (2 g's), as severe as any that's been measured and far more than scientists or engineers thought possible, even in the largest earthquakes, back in the 1980s.

      With all the destruction and disruption, it's great to hear that the studio survived and Mike's been busy. Best wishes to him and to everyone in Christchurch as fall approaches.

      Take your time Mike. Just glad you reached your goal! No worries, it's all good. Four Osprey Cove neighbors are heading to NZ in March. Perhaps they can catch up while on tour.

      Good going, Mike! I'm sure we'll all enjoy your renditions of the " roaring forties."
