Hi, everyone, Mr. Average here.  I’ve been traveling for the Easter holiday, and in the rush to get packed I totally neglected to bring any drawing equipment with me.  I’ll be back in my studio tomorrow, but I think we’re going to be delayed this week.  It galls me something fierce to do that so close to the end of the chapter, but there it is.  We’ll be back on target soon, though!  Happy Easter, and a belated Chag Pesach Sameach!  Back soon – I haven’t failed you yet!

I’ve been trying to get to this scene since 2009.  Here’s to it!  Here we have the real crux of the story, I guess – at least as far as Colonel Haulley is concerned.  He’s given up everything and caused a war, and he can’t handle the possibility that it all was all for nothing.

Anyway, I’ll just leave this here.  All the best, folks.
