Thanks to all who left the encouraging comments on chapter 30, and to all who sent good wishes to my wife. She's pretty well on the mend, and after an in situ pacemaker adjustment/reprogramming, her heart rate is much better and much more stable.
Rob and Kaitlyn are in for lots more adventures, I think, and not a few surprises. I'm listening to them in my head as I work in my garden, (nearly 8000 sq ft) and writing stuff down on my breaks. Just picked a big handful of asparagus!
