My pleasure, and I mean that sincerely. It turned out to be a nice haven of
fun in a week of being too busy.

> How typical that things clutter that way!

Yes. I'm not sure why the world of Esperanto (otherwise known as
Esperantugo) piles things into July. Doing things in the summer, I
understand. But why not spread out the courses and congress, at least from
Mary to September, rather than clumping them in July?

> I was sort of in and out due to health,

Sorry to hear about the health part.

> is was a bit difficult with people knowing each other so well,

We only knew each other from this list, and the Zoom meetings. Well... I
guess some people have met at World Cons and other such venues, but I never
had a chance to attend, and when I did, I didn't know about the Bujold
get-togethers. I think Alayne is the only person who has come to the Tea
Parties whom I know in person, but she wasn't there this week.

Anyway, I am getting to match names and faces (and even matching the right
names to the right faces) and feeling as if know the Tea Party crowd now.

As she should be. Yes.

> Maybe we could try with topics? Perhaps sending ideas to Elizabeth who
could select one?

I really like that idea.
