I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

Considering it's about 8PM Turo time, he may be having supper or reading through what has been rcvd so far. I've not sent to Piggy so far, sorry.

Timewise, is Melbourne, Australia ahead of London, GB UK or behind? And, by how many hours?

I just discovered that Scrivener isn't underscoring spelling issues. Any suggestions anyone?

I do get back to you, but only after I've opened it and had a quick read through. I've seen your email Jaysen, but I got about 10 chapters that came in all at once.

I'm also prioritising answering Qs over reading chapters.

Understood.

I'll assume no news is good news.

I'm in, just under 3k. Couldn't get the ocean, poodles, a HAW or a biplane in. Not without forcing it anyway...

I figured naked women would excuse all omissions from my previously conceived plots.

And win me Vic-k points.

Done and sent, 2345 tortuously chosen words. :wink:

There's room for a "martini, shaken but not stirred" reference, but I forbore.

Not that I was competing with you but 4016 is what scriv tells me. I feel better knowing that I'm the rarified air of the "Blount count".
