A recurring theme in the story will involve the infamous sacrificial burning of the birdhouse.

I hope for it to be an authentic and grandiose characterization of GreatGreg.
I still have some fleshing out to do.. but its a literary project that I'm seriously considering. It would certainly be an epic undertaking.

I should get back to my rough draft of this.. Maybe I can finally edit it and post a thread about it.
