Such fun watching your "documentary" of this git taking form here over that last weeks. It was a mystery adventure story for sure with a terrific final scene. Thanks Bones!

"Ditto" Uncle Johns comments about the paper and a score in the "High 9s", in the early build stages I thought it was cloth of some sort, was a protective coat of something applies ???  :-)

Thank you UJ for those very kind comments .

That is really pretty, but I would be afraid I would bang up and tear up the paper.  But that might look pretty good too.  High 9s, Mr. Reilly. 

Reminds me of the days of a co-worker in the era of the great boxer, Muhammed Ali.  We called him Muhammed Reilly.
