    • Tom says:

      That’s what happens when you do these things at 1 am. Sorry, Dick!

      • DickDe says:

        Don’t give it thought, Tom! I was just checking to see if you read your comments! 🙂 – But don’t be suprised if I put “artist uncredited” when I post something from our upcoming The Avengers satire. Luv ya. Dick De
