On a personal note, that is all for this series of Sombrero Fallout. I've loved every minute of it. If only it paid a small salary, it would never end. I've loved reconnecting with so many old friends, and making some new ones too. Thank you for your warm support and encouragement in this trip into the unknown. I hope to be back before too long.
