There were a number of you who thought that I should organize this particular set of stories into a series. I'm sorry I didn't do it sooner, but I'm still pretty new at this whole writing for the pleasure of others game. I'm also sometimes intimidated by the technology; is this the right thing to do? What if I screw it up totally? Etc, Etc, Etc!
Let me know if this helps you to read these in order.
BTW, I hope to have the next story out next week or the week after at the latest. Lots of things going on in the real world, but I promise to keep up here!
