At 1023 a.m. this morning, the Ned Kelly files arrived at the printer! Does this mean I can slacken off? No. I have an Air Hawk volume to begin working on! Here are a couple of pictures of my office, and evidence of my progress on Air Hawk. Why is it so messy and untidy? One, I can work best with everything all spread out, and two, Mrs Karmichael (who would not approve of Point One) is presently down south (helping out before the arrival of another grandchild). Is that why I have been able to make more entries on this Web-Blog lately? Yes.
