Greetings from Saint-Gervais-Les-Bains, in the French Alps! Hope this message isn’t too gi-normous.
   
Sorry about the tardy update. I’ve been hunkered down on a rewrite — mission accomplished on Monday. We did find some fun over the weekend, however. On Saturday we caught a bus to Chamonix (not far) and took the tram up to Midi (more than 12,000 feet), which affords spectacular views of Mont Blanc and surrounds. Spectacular day. Apologies for the mondo contrast — the sun was over the big fella when we arrived. It’s heartening to see lots of snow and ice alive and well in the Alps.
