Well, folks, it’s been a great summer, and the time off did me a whole lot of good.  But it’s time to get back to it!  And so here we have the first page of Chapter 6.  We’re heading towards the halfway mark of this marathon!

Among the many things that happened this summer, by the way, was that my graphics tablet, a venerable Wacom Cintiq 12WX, finally went the way of all flesh.  I could probably have repaired or troubleshot it better than I did, but all things considered, I simply upgraded.  Expensive, but worth it.  And these days, touch-sensitive technology seems to be the way it’s going, so that’s taking a lot of getting used to.  But I shall persevere!

Thanks to everyone for the patience while I was on vacation.  I’m sure that more than a few of you may have thought I wasn’t coming back!  But I think I’m well past the point of no return on this.  To stop now would be a gigantic bummer.

So, here we go!  On to Chapter 6!
