Thank you for being patient while I was on vacation. Returning to our story and Tristan following his curiosity.

In RL news, no luck on the job front since the federal hiring freeze mucked up my seasonal (but much needed) NPS career. I’m still working on it. It weighs heavily on my mind. I’m not the only 30-something living with my parents; I’ll manage. I also found a small tumor on one of my pet rats, so I’m dealing with that this week. I have a good vet but no money/job, so we’re running on credit and faith at this point.

Anywho, Used Books is my most treasured diversion, and all this stress-energy has fueled a scripting frenzy. So, let’s call it a good thing and keep the story moving.
