And I forgot to mention, I finally read Hulk Hercules a few weeks ago! Sorry I took so long to get to it. Little boys and massive reading lists leave a backlog.
Hope many children are enjoying that one!

Chris:

Thanks for reading the book.

I just had a talk with my hygienist, who bought the book for her daughter. "Mom, do you really know the lady who wrote that book?" I was cuted out.

Thanks, Doug. It was pretty sweet.

Not to mention the pleasure of introducing S&S to a new generation. :)

Speaking of awesome, I finally started book 5. It will take me a few weeks to squeeze it all in, but then the games can begin...
