01-07-2016 02:09 AM by Mark Wilson | 6 comments »

I know. I didn’t do this with the first two. But, you know, things get better, as one goes along. This one seemed worth the effort. I’m not done with it yet. I’m in the process of finishing the inside. So, while BLO soaks, I Blog. There are seventeen Montages involved here. I’m thinking I’ll give you three or four at a time, so’s you don’t get bored.
