No, I'm not dead or debilitated. Things have been busy. I had, basically, two one-week vacations/trips, softball and ebay are taking up enormous amounts of my time, and I'm still unpacking/organizing (yes, I have that much stuff.) Not to mention that work is the acid that constantly threatens to make everything come unglued.
I've got the basic ideas for the next few episodes, and a rough vision of what adventures remain between now and episode 1000. I just need to finalize my plans, focus, and turn out some new episodes.
It's almost time. I promise.
