    Hey, that is great writing (I’ve finally bookmarked it). I’ve read a bit of Jane Goodall and seen her documentaries, and been fascinated with her lifelong dedication in this field. She’s an extraordinary human being. But don’t forget, the “natural man” in us is “only” some 99.4% (the genetic origins we share with chimps). Maybe if they could “gain” that 0.6%, they’d invent religion and start killing one another for a “higher purpose”. In the next life, I want to be a chimpanzee, and specifically the Bonobo species. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks Belaja!!!

    LOL, worry not!!!

    Actually, this segment (even though it’s part 5) was the very last segment that I wrote. I wrote it to establish the back-story for Joe, who’s a main character in Temple Wedding and Orem High, and also to introduce Spencer, who’s the star of Bordeaux Mission. ๐Ÿ˜€
