    Great to see you back for the summer! Classic Hinde Butlin’s postcard. Would “Having nice time. Plenty to do.” be considered damning with faint praise, or typical English understatement? The camp I went to in Indiana as a kid was nothing like Butlin’s, that’s for sure.

    • And glad to see you back too – I think probably both . . . we English are masters at damning with faint praise! DWx
