I, Pondhopper

... and not a Dalek in sightI have to apologize for my absence over the last couple of days, and the slight deception that was involved; I really did have some trouble with my internet connection, but I also ran off to England for the weekend to celebrate my brother-in-law’s 50th birthday.

It was a surprise party, and he checks in on this blog from time to time, so naturally I couldn’t say anything about the trip here. But it went off without a hitch, and a marvelous time was enjoyed by all.

(This was the first time Kate and her five brothers have all been together in a decade, so I was doubly delighted to be present.)

Also, the next night, we found the TARDIS. Walked right past it, actually, on the way to the Underground, before Kate did a double-take and pointed it out to the rest of us.

In my defense, I’d been drinking for hours.

Which is pretty obvious in the picture.
