As many of you may know, Blogger had some technical challenges in the past week, and was from time to time down for the count. An unfortunate consequence of that was a number of the comments you left here on Reggie either never saw the light of day, or disappeared after I posted them, never to return.
I am unhappily aware that I lost at least six comments on my essay about lilacs, and that many—or more—on my story about MD's ashes. Please understand that it was not I who decided not to post your comments, nor was it I who decided to delete them after they (all too briefly) appeared. It was, I am afraid, the Blogger Gremlins.
I welcome your comments, Dear Readers, and I am pleased and honored to have them whenever I have the great good fortunate to receive them.
