  1. From another opera freak - Bravo! This book has been a great entertainment in semi-quarantine! I am stoked that you plan to continue with a new book. Thanks for hours of fun!
  2. Bravo Mark. A gentle chapter. Maybe this volume will end up resolving a number of issues in everyone’s life. I look forward to the start of a new volume with eagerness. What will happen if you reach the present day? Love to to see what you do to Cheeto Man! Thanks - Colstomo
  3. Bravo Mark! I lived in Washington DC in 2001 and I vividly remember driving past the Pentagon after having been released early from my job at NASA trying to get home. I remember that the traffic was lurching down the beltway at breakneck speeds. People were spooked. My partner was attending a conference in Arlington VA just a half mile from the Pentagon when the plane struck the building. Cell phone service was out and we could not connect, so she walked about 10 miles from Arlington to our home in northwest DC. Several civilian employees with whom I had worked were killed at the Pentagon that day. Several weeks later I learned that the hijackers of the plane that hit the Pentagon were frequent customers at an Italian restaurant near my workplace. We had noticed them several times at lunch. They were a bit noisy and rather arrogant, and apparently lived around the corner from the restaurant. Five weeks later we went up to New York to hear a concert performance of Tristan Und Isolde at Carnegie Hall with Barenboim and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. We had purchased the tickets the previous summer. In NYC we took the Circle Line boat tour which took us around the island. The wreckage of the WTC was still on fire and smoking up the city. We took a long walk down one of the avenues where we saw dozens of fire stations decked with memorials and fotos of dead firemen and first responders. We got within a few blocks of the wreckage but the acrid air forced us to flee north to our hotel. The details in your story brought all of this back to us along with echoes of the emotional upset that went with it. I think you captured the effect of the event on your characters beautifully. Their reactions are not the least far-fetched. Rereading this called up all the emotions of that time. Brilliant. Thanks for your perseverance. C

    Chapter 75

    Just finished rereading this volume. I used to be a govt Contracting Officer in DC and Germany. You got the gov-contractor relationship just right, not to mention it’s basic amoral nature. I don’t know if the country will ever get back to any basic honesty or decency in so many areas. Vote people! Thanks for your continued effort on CAP! Bravo!

    Chapter 53

    This is a great volume. It has sorrows and humor in equal measure. The development of the characters is great - they are never allowed to get boring and they are cute on top of that! Thanks for A very entertaining read during these unnecessarily trying times.

    Chapter 4

    Could it be that JP had a Pontiac Bonneville? My dad had a 1960 Bonneville convertible in what they called “candy-apple red”, which was a deep dark red. It was fucking beautiful! I remember the whole family going to polo games in it. We were stylin’! I’m going through this epic for the third time. It’s got to be one of the most articulate and interesting stories on the internet. Thanks - Colostomo

    Hi Mark - This is my second reading of your opus. My iPad is smeared with tears. Bravo!
  9. Is there a chapter 33? Or is it just a skipped number? Fabulous story. Thank you.
