Betty,
Would you listen to the pause on section 22 at 11:49 (after "I understand,"). It seems a bit long and made me look up.
I'm now caught up and unless noted, everything so far is PL OK.

My goodness these glitches are driving me crazy.
I will get onto them tomorrow.
I actually like the very first picture. Hopefully, it will transcribe to the cover well. Thank you for doing all that research. very kind of you.
This might be the prettiest cover yet.

I like that pic too. Very Thai/Siam. What do you think of this?

Pic is too busy to overlay text on top of it. I'm using publisher and can get text to run from top to bottom on the side, but not bottom to top, which is why there is only text on one side and the picture is offset from center ...

OK, we'll go with that then.

I noticed the servant holding the red umbrella above the main guy's head. I would think that his arms got incredibly tired very quickly, even if the umbrella was very light. Having a pole in the middle of that umbrella would be a great help. But then, maybe he's trained for this and has incredible arm and shoulder muscles! Just don't drop the umbrella on your boss's head!

I have uploaded the files for spot check. On playing #13 back on my laptopI could find no skipping.
I'm sure the umbrella porters thought that was easy work compared to other jobs.

Sorry about 13 ... not sure what I was thinking.

You're all good now.
