had a nice videochat with Sam today, even though we kept losing connection cuz his voice is so quiet. He recounted the guest list for his birthday: Jessica and her boyfriend, Lee and Pat and Ralph, Edith and Jennifer, Christine and Buddy. Miss anyone? Apparently you had a very nice dinner at the Putney Inn, where they still remember Sam (whether from mistaking his slow movements as drunkenness or other events I didn’t inquire, grin). I know lots of you were there in spirit. The best part of our conversation was Sam recalling a time that The Experiment held it’s annual event in Brugge, Belgium. I visited there a few weeks ago. Forgot to mention that it is the cleanest city I have ever seen – they literally sweep the streets!
