Okay, now we're just past the half-way point!
That is, referring to cash this time, and not time. I even have another couple pledges waiting to come though, so it's likely we'll have this project about 2/3 funded with 10 days (1/3 time) left to go.
Looks like a pretty perfect pace to me!
But I can't count my cute little chickens before their hatched, so I'll keep working to see the drive get to the finish line.
And equally important, I'm filling in all my nooks and crannies of spare time working on the book: )
Big thanks to recent donors: Chris, Koryl, Aaron, Bryan, and Robert!
