Last but not least - our dear, dear friend and scintillating travel companion, Olga Zasetskaya.
A Disclaimer Of Sorts
If Henry Ford actually said "history is bunk," he probably said it because he couldn’t control, mold, or manufacture it. As a lowly writer, I had no such handicap. I had my way freely with history, changing names, ages, chronological events and anything else that got in the way of how I prefer to remember things.

FAR AWAY PLACES
"Far away places with strange soundin’ names,
Far away over the sea.
Those far away places with the strange soundin’ names
Are callin’, callin’ me.
Goin’ to China or maybe Siam,
I wanna see for myself.
