Thabks for watching and comment I have a hand full of these in progress and need to record some more so be on the lookout , long term goal is eventualy all of them but they're so Manny and some some are rather long so it's not realistic to get them all up to snuff at the same time In perpetuity so once thru I plan to keep a few favs up and rotate thru various regularly 😎👍
