Good to see you, Allison. Lynne and Shirley have also arrived. Maybe this party ought to continue for an extra day or so, just so everybuddy can say hello and meet the book's characters.
Okay, start reading Shanghai Girls, but also drop by the island any day this week and help yourselves to the finger foods. More tea, anybuddy? Theo makes a great cuppa hot tea, or we also have iced tea.
