Hey guys.  No post today.  I am taking a one week sabbatical.  I’m close to finishing a draft and I want to focus more of my time on getting that done so I can get to editing.  I will be back next week but I might only post bi-weekly for the next month or so.  I will keep y’all updated.  If you need your TWJ fix, I have a decently long archive that can keep you entertained for the afternoon.  Thanks, everyone.
