I haven't forgotten the "Steadfast Tin Soldier" issue at all! Nor am I generally behind on the site. I am helping my parents out. Mom fell while gardening, but is out of the hospital and on the mend. I hope to get the issue out this weekend.
I also hope I've inherited my parents fantastic genes. Mom is healing quite well, all things considered, and Dad is proving quite the caregiver! At 83 and 85, respectively, they are amazingly tough. But they still need me, and my days will be filled down here on the Isle of Palms through the end of the week.
