Good News and Bad News…

We’re moved! And so are our thirty-one boxes of Civil War books. Soooo many books. We’re very glad the move is over and we’re in our new place, but we did want to let you guys know that I (Rich) recently found out that I have a detached retina and will be having surgery to repair it. The doctor wanted to do the surgery right away, last week, but with the move that wasn’t going to work, so it will be later this week instead. Unfortunately, that means you will have to wait a bit longer for Episode #200. Sorry!
