Ex Nicotine

Apologies to all loyal MDPB readers, but due to some medical problems of a rather serious character, there will be a temporary period of no daily blog entries. Even though I had given up smoking 31 years ago, it seems that the heart remembers the sins of a young person. I am abroad at the moment, far away from Mallorca, and far away from computers or anything digital other than hospital equipment, and I do not know at this moment when I will be back and able to once again entertain you. I promise to keep you up-to-date as soon as I possibly can. Molts d’anys.


Just a quick update to let you know that Klaus had his operation a week ago today (28.09). Everything went well and he is recovering well and is in good spirits. He misses his blog and he misses you all. Thanks for your wonderful well-wishes. Thank you.

  6. We will certainly miss our daily MDPB fix! I have sometimes wondered if providing us with fascinating snippets about some of the more obscure aspects of this island on a daily basis without fail for several years in a row wasn’t beginning to get stressful for you. So even if it means we have to wait a bit longer, don’t put yourself under pressure and get back to full health before continuing. Best wishes and gute Besserung!
