Welp, after a rather brutal September, October is looking pretty grim, and we're less than a third of the way through.
Scooter is currently on the receiving end of life's surprise shenanigans, so in the meantime, here's a bit of filler which was SUPPOSED to be our entry into the Reading Rainbow Calendar "Be Anything, Go Anywhere" themed contest thingy, but the day job had some extra-special surprises waiting for yours truly as well, so there were a number of cock-ups in the submission version which I've attempted to correct in this version here.
Unfortunately, thanks to sleep deprivation and work-related issues, the soggy mush that is my brain unwittingly omitted the entire "Go Anywhere" part of the motif.
Such is life. Or Life, as the case may be.
Hopefully, the story will continue next week, barring further surprises.
