"Stock" as a word has a lot more meanings and connections.

Stock as in merchandise for sale.

Stock as in the basis for soup.

Stock as in part of a gun.

Stock as in stock still, rigidly motionless.

Stock as in stock-rail, part of a railway point (switch, turnout, whichever nomenclature you are familiar with).

etc. etc.

Sorry. I should have said that my list wasn't exhaustive. :)

Having just got the list of attendees, the full enormity has just hit me: neither Samantha nor Erwin will be there. No rich Russian swear words. No infectious giggle. It just won't be the same without you. :( :(

Should still be good, though. :) :)

No rich Russian swear words.

Well, we've known about Samantha, who has been complaining here about not being able to attend.
Maybe she could throw a few of those words into this discussion? B)
And Henk and I will do our best, though he could probably do a creditable job in Dutch alone. (I mean that the Dutch language has a fine repertoire of "cuss" words, not that Henk has a reputation for using them. :))

No infectious giggle.

I'm still hoping against hope that Concertino (Erwin) will simply show up, as he's showed up on my doorstep a couple of times. :) Since he's gone permanently on the road, communication has been difficult. Though I haven't received an email from him since before last year's SSI, the invitation I emailed wasn't returned as undeliverable (and I just left a reminder in his web site's guest book). I have received a few postcards from him over the past year. In the most recent -- a couple of weeks ago, -- he didn't mention the SSI, but did say he was trying to hitchhike northward from Spain. So as I say, I'm hoping.

Should still be good, though.  :)  :)

Good? No, sir. Great!
And what makes it great is the combination of all those who come, most definitely including yourself, Chris. :)
