Always good to hear from or about you. Still hold fond memories of our talks and walks in England. Nearing 88 and still active--though no longer teaching, Needless to say (need to think about that expression!) I would welcome an opportunity to see you, though I realize how busy you must be. You are one the good ones, Leonard!!
