... but I finally managed to get Chapter 8 of "Fun With The Colte Family" completed.
Chapter 9 - the final chapter in this little saga! - should be finished and posted by the end of this month (October 2014).
After that, it's on to either a "Colte" sequel - "The Colte Family Vacation" - or a new multi-chapter story tentatively titled "Playing Ball With Mom". If there's a preference for either, please drop me a line and let me know.
