Yes, welcome, Rhiannon. Good to have someone of your talents here. If you have any questions, ask away - lots of knowledgeable folk here, and good players too.

Yeah, sure, give me a day or so to find it and kindly ask my wife to upload it for me.


I'm a pencil and paper kind of guy.  Not too good with scanners and stuff.

Got the Far Side Reel uploaded.  It's not a real dark scan, but I think it's readable.  My wife has a better scanner at work, she'll scan it tommorow and I'll put up a hopefully more readable version.
