Just for the record...

...a very good friend called me today in an effort to cheer me up a bit.

During the course of the conversation, I dropped in a dry little one-liner (it would take far too long to explain) and, after a pause, what I said hit her and she dissolved in wonderful, uninhibited laughter.

It's been too long since I've heard anything like that. It warmed my heart and, for far longer than the actual bout of mirth lasted, calmed my soul.

In fact, the effects linger, even now.

So this is for you, Lauren, in gratitude for what you did and who you are...

There is nothing so pleasurable as to make someone dissolve with helpless laughter.

It's a pleasuse I know well - soon as I take off my motorcycle helmet and show my face, people just fall about (I thought I would get that in before you did, you miserable ole scribbler)

You're too modest, JJ -- you don't even have to pop off the crash-hat!

BTW -- has your BMW forgiven you for feeding it diesel juice yet?
