Ta Mo.

You are just so good with these

I've been a bit remiss and missed the words today.

I've had a trying day with both my laptops playing up.

See you tomorrow.

A very Good Morning to you Marie.

Well done with the cryptics.

Thank you for your concern Marie, unbelievably both my old and new laptops

were unusable yesterday, thankfully my old laptop has been repaired and my

new laptop is having a new optical drive fitted by a Dell engineer this afternoon.
