I fear that, like the good Dr. Pickering, my Latin is "very rusty." Or nonexistent. Still, nothing ventured, and all that.

ooh! I have a deadline on a writing assignment due tomorrow, and I am looking forward to listening to these chapters after, as a treat! The first one was very enjoyable...

Good. I'm glad you're enjoying the tale. It's getting more mysterious quickly...

Who is that ancient mariner and why did he discharge a revolver "point blank" at the First Mate?
Who sneaked into the Doctor's cabin and peeked at the secret-revealing documents?
And why doesn't the First Mate have any bullet holes in him?
:lol: :lol:

"Treasure exists, it seems, mostly on islands the exact latitude and longitude of which is a secret, or else in caves in Guatemala, or beneath the earth in Mexico--all far afield." Yep. :)

You are tearing it up! I will be doing a few more chapters today or tomorrow. We had to have my 17 year old Minpin-chihuahua mix put to sleep today, and frankly, I'm having an adult beverage or two to recuperate, so it might not be til tomorrow!

I've been there, and I understand your loss. Have an extra one on me, and don't worry about DPL-ing. We're not on a schedule.

Thanks for your understanding response! I'm off to a dogsitting gig over the weekend (actually I have several in a row between now and October 9) and the folks there are in the process of getting ready to move to Montana (!) so curtains and wall coverings and rugs are gone and I found last weekend that the whole place is way to echo-y to record. So it's a good time to catch up on the prooflistening side of things!
