This evening, browsing through a box of mementoes from the first time we lived in the English county of Shropshire (“so good we lived there twice”), I came across the front cover from a 1987 report I wrote on … well, the title – and the black type on gray – tell you everything you need to know. To be fair, it was a great deal more interesting than that. No, really, it was!
But still not interesting enough to keep a copy for nearly thirty years. Other than the front cover – as a mere memento.
Or perhaps not even that. I turned over the cover, and discovered the real reason for keeping it. This –
