Greetings -

Shibe, your Chapter 7 was nicely read. You seem to have your system dialed in correctly.

I have changed the MW to show that it is PL OK.

I am amazed at Fabre's observation skills. To sit in the sun for a couple of hours and watch a spider build its web...I do not think I would have the patience to do that.

Once, when I was hiking, I came across this beautiful spider web approaching two feet in diameter and glistening in the morning sun. It was across the trail and, not having the heart to destroy such a work of art, I carefully unhooked the two main "support cables" on one side and swung the web like a gate to one side of the trail and reattached the cables. It was the highlight of my day of hiking.

Wow. That is dedication to the preservation of nature :) I am usually unaware of spider webs until I've walked through one and am wearing it like a mask.

I agree on Fabre's patience and dedication though.

Section 17 was much more than adequately read and the MW now shows it as PL OK.

Speaking of the MW, it had the wrong length for this section and I corrected to the actual length of 32:16.

Thanks! These are in the MW now.

Almost finished! I've contacted the last two readers we're waiting on. If I don't hear back by Sunday, those sections will become orphaned.
