You're welcome! I'm so glad you got it and like it. Sorry it was late! I was so disappointed when I found out it got there a day after you left. But it took a long time to write, and also I found myself unable to stop watching the show to write the poem for a lot of that week. (I was just going to watch two episodes to get a feel for it, honestly, I really was. I have now watched Seasons 1 *and* 2, *and* part of 3. And got two other people hooked on it. And have been told repeatedly by roommates and friends to stop mentioning how everything that happens "is just like in Doctor Who when...")

And sorry the poem is so long! I had planned on a sensible 2 or 3 pages, but I had hardly got into it by then, and things just kept happening I hadn't planned, like Hermione and everyone showing up, and then it just sort of wrote itself and demanded to be that long.

Aaaaaaaanyway, Happy Christmas, Katie!

Well, talk about coincidence, I send (and hope she recieved) Kassi H a couple of books by Robert Laxalt hoping to give her a feel for my home in Nevada. Both books have to do with the Basque experience here. Today, I recieved my gift from anti-maven. (after an involved reminder of why I always use the brown trucks when I need more service than the USPS can provide.) It is a great book, Ezagutu Euskal Herria (discover the Basque homeland) Now I have the starting point for that large group that finished here in Northern Nevada. Fortunatly it has translations in both Spanish and English. As many of you know, Euskadi is so dificult that it is the only language the Devil never learned to speak. This accounts for the temperment of "Los Vascos." Thanks Richard! This is new territory and I will enjoy the visit.

Artemesia, you are most welcome, and I'm sorry for the grief with Fedex. I hope you enjoy the photos and are tempted to visit in real life - I'd be happy to take you out for a pintxo or three!

I myself don't have Basque heritage, but I do live in the Basque country, and I can fully understand why the devil never learned the language! However, it's great fun learning, and always nice to surprise the locals with a phrase or two as an Euskaldun berri-berria (a very novice Basque speaker [Wink] )

Gero arte!

Icarus, Sorry, I'm not Vasco, just Western. I'm a part of that group that considers the East Coast to start at the Cheyenne, Denver, Albuquerque axis. My personal heritage is Danish (and Mexican). But I have a great intrest in, and affinity for, all of the groups of the Great Basin.

Canadian Post is apparently stupid. On the plus side the mailman appologized for their stupidity [Wink]

I got an awesome gift from Valentine014! I got a Red-Necked Wallaby! I'm the adopted parent and it's at the Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. Apparently it likes to hop and it eats wild grasses,, leaves and brush. I'll have to link a picture when I get my scanner up and running.

Thank you very much Valentine014! I hope you had a great holiday.
