Emperor Pharr's new clothes

Hello All

This is a terrific forum.

Hi, everybody!

After about three months of seasonal work and one month of vacation, I'm finally home and settling back into my routines again. I did my first lesson of Latin today, and I'm really looking forward to setting up a regular schedule for studying it. Thank goodness, I can do that now. :)

It's good to be back!
