Working on a fourth manuscript

    A publisher wanted something new, and Accents may not qualify. So I am making a rough manuscript. Good thing I had a file ready for such a purpose!

A Different Type of Event

    My thanks to Al Black for inviting me to this venue. Since then, I actually have thought to doing some yoga to help my back.   Hmmmm.
