Commentary: To my future self, scouring The Secret Base for Wayback Machine hyperlinks: Please be charitable in considering the recent disruptions to Project BLACK MAMBA, the smooth functioning of which is always to be desired. The C.R.H.P. Team VII retreat, Cursillo № 255, History Quiz Night '17—"Misty Beavers Empire," the Lenten K. of C. fish fry—all have played a part in severely curtailing the time I've been able to dedicate to BLACK MAMBA. Add to that March '17's Irish R.B.D.S.O.T.D. & SKApril '17, & a lingering cold, & please try to understand how hectic these last few weeks have been.
