Andi Arrives


My old friend Andrea MacLeod was in town last week to visit friends and relatives. It's always great to see Andi - I can hardly believe we met back in 1990, almost 20 years ago. Andrea's sharp wit and brash nature always kept those of us in the U of A Star Trek Club entertained. (Andrea was a Scuba Club member; we managed to partially assimilate her.) My favourite Andrea line is probably "Was Grant up here to talk about himself some more?"



Shortly after we met, Andrea moved to Germany for what was supposed to be an adventure of just a few months; she wound up staying for years, only recently moving to the UK after marrying her (scandalously younger) beau Greg. They're parents now, enjoying what seems to be an idyllic life in the English countryside.

Have a safe trip back, Andi, and thanks for brightening up our day!

It was great to see you two as well. I think it's time for Greg and I to do the hosting next time...

See, the thing is, Sylvia & Earl are THE consummate hosts. It's always wonderful to visit them.

The rest of us, well, I suspect we have to work very hard to match their high standard of hosting excellence.

Maybe someday Sylvia & Earl will go on tour, and we can repay their generosity, if only in part.

Consummate hosts?

Every time I visit, I get the "Sean, build this" or "Sean, cook that" treatment.

Well, they are consummate if you only see them once every five years, I guess. I'm pretty sure that's what "consummate" means, anyways.
