I aim to please, CeJay.
Glad I hit the mark for you with this one. Thanks so much for reading and commenting!
ETA -- More delays ahead. Busy weekend = no writing accomplished and no promise of time to work on it much this week, either, what with work being crazy. All I can promise is that I'll try my best! Stolen moments here and there ... hopefully they'll add up to something very soon. Thanks, all, for sticking with it and being patient for now. I really appreciate it.
