  1. Nice :). My only request is that you identify the start point. The page loads and it starts scrolling the pictures before I can see them. Going back is an endless loop so I have to guess. Putting a “start here” message would help.

    I like the nature (can’t come up with the right word) of the story so we’re seeing the current but also how the current comes to be.

    • My browser takes a minute to start the Javascript, so I hadn’t realized that would be a problem. I poked around, and Automattic seems to have no intention of adding a toggle to disable autoplay, more’s the pity. (They closed the ticket on Github, saying that there was no desire at the present to add more functions.)

      In future, I will add a caption to the first one. Meanwhile, yes, Ashe is right about the first one in this group.

      It’s kind of fun doing flashbacks and backstory! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cute! I think the beginning is “Very well, short-whiskers, I will help.” But yes, in future posts, a “start here” image would be nice because it does begin scrolling before it completely loads.

    • Thank you! Yes, you’re right, that’s where it starts. As I told Margaret, I will try to caption the first one in future installments.

  3. Love the story. Love the drawings. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Oooh. More!

    I love the drawing of the bluejay.

    • I wasn’t terribly happy with my illustrations of the jay mid-flight, but I think the others came out much better than I expected. ๐Ÿ™‚
