Thanks to Mike "O" as usual for his input, and hard work.
I enjoy writing this story. It is a bit of down time in an ever busier life, and I find it a perfect, harmless, distraction for me. The big surprise is the number of people who write to me, just furious over some comment made by a character in a story, or an opinion with which they disagree.
It's just a story, folks, and one I'm having a bit of fun creating. Please take it that way.
