I seem to remember that she told us that the injure from her fall was a bit troublesome, and that she had to take some strong painkillers..
Kitty, I hope you are ok.. :unsure:

Kitty's profile shows that she was last here on 14th July.

Has anyone sent her e-mail or PM?

I have been thinking about it, but have not yet done it. Probably one person should.

Last week I visited friends in Estonia. On Friday evening we had a party at Mutikluti's home. We used to call this get-together the Storkaholics Convention! I suppose it is still that, but it is a good excuse for a happy time with old friends.

Urmas joined us. He did his best to shoot one of the Storkaholics with a champagne cork, but fortunately there was no fatality, just a few puddles. :rotf:

During the evening, Urmas showed us a new type of transmitter being tested by Kotkaklubi this. Year.
It is made in Poland and costs about a quarter of the price of earlier models.
This one is covered in plastic, so it is suitable for water birds, too.
Here it is on Mutikluti's hand, photographed by Kuremari.

If you find one, turn it over to find the return address.

I enjoyed the Opening Ceremony too, it was magnificent and impressive.
I especially liked the version of the hymne, Abide With Me.., and that the next generation of athletes lit the fire..
