Thanks Dave and Doris
Delighted always to hear from you. Many fond memories of my Washington trips, and of Cynthia and John.
Pleased that you are managing to fit in and enjoy echinoderm-related work. May that continue.
I have celebrated my 80th and age is telling! But thankfully not too confused and feeble yet!
Warmest best wishes
Congratulations to you and colleagues on this lovely piece of work! I was very interested to see the resurrection of Studer's Molpadia violacea! I can't tell you for how long I agonized over the status of the various southern oceans Molpadia "species", finally throwing a bunch of them into synonymy w/musculus... a form of surrender, I guess. But, it's grand today, isn't it, to have another set of diagnostic tools at the molecular level, to help enormously with decision-making about the status of various taxa.
Doris and I trust you're keeping well these days? We seem to be spending more time in doctors' offices than in our laboratory these days, but we're still enjoying doing echinoderm-related things!
Best from us, Doris and Dave.
I have just published a paper on the sea cucumbers of the Kerguelen Plateau, in collaboration with Jessica, Melanie and Didier.
With best wishes to all
