    Good work, Lappy, and nice to see you back at the Cafe. Hope everything's going well. Any tunes for us?

    I started these in July 2020, they take as long as they take I’m not on a schedule, I work for myself, by myself. I assume these will be finished up around August or September. My customers are thankfully very patient.

    Nah, I'll just aspire to make fewer mistakes and fix the rare ones I make.
