Despite Rhiannon's cancer diagnosis today, I managed to squeeze out 1750 words, bringing me to the end of Chapter 11. Gryphon Precinct is now at 31,750 words.

And now to bed..........

midweek music: "St. James Infirmary" by Hugh Laurie

People mostly know him these days as Dr. Gregory House, though to me he will always be various idiots named George in Blackadder and the single best person to ever play Bertie Wooster. What most people don't know is that Hugh Laurie is also a superb musician, and here he is doing one of my favorite songs ever, "St. James Infirmary."
