Probably. But I still can't get to it. Now I need to do another PICSOU
pin-up before I leave for Greece.

I haven't spent a moment on making notes yet.

With the Beagle Boys torturing a bound and beaten Glittering Goldie with a
red-hot poker in her eye? No, maybe I should avoid that along with the rape
and vivisection scenes.

No, I think I made it clear that the Beagle Boys had not seen $crooge
between 1882 and 1902. But I'll think about it. Still, I don't need them for
the story I have in mind. I already have a villain in the varmint who
kidnaps Goldie and hauls her off to White Agony Valley.   Unchaperoned.

> Of course, the possibilities for villains in Dawson City and other ideas
for a storylines are endless.

Well, what I need are heroes. I'll make sure every living hero of 1897 shows
up in Dawson City to rescue Glittering Goldie, the Star of the North, from
the ruthless polecat who dragged her off into the wilderness. (If that's
what she wants.)

That's all you'll get. Just wait and read the story.
Now I must go and practice dancing while holding a handkerchief in my teeth.
