I turned out to be too tired to type. This morning, I awoke, and lay without pen or paper handy, and took off on a cool-ly worded midsection of chapter one. By the time I'd gotten up, located pen and paper, took care of the tom cat who decided up = willing to give attention, then wrote myself to the prizely worded line's insertion point, but had lost all but one word and the "gist" of the comment. :-(
Back to clipboard and pen in bed with me, I guess.
