Very nice James. I think your next novel should star a group of rogue tree measurers....! j/k

*edit spelling

Chris-
Your comment did bring me much mirth!
Spelling does matter (I'm sure a typo)...the difference between a group of rouge (as in the reddish make-up employed by women, actors) tree measurers, and that of rogue tree measurers (like the image a year or so back with Bob and others wearing bright orange safety watch caps) is often rather different!
At least I hope so!

Rouge or Rogue, which ever James Robert can use to make a good story is fine with me.

ha! Well it is pretty clear why I am not the writer.

I will leave that to the pros.

I knew what he meant. The nature of Internet communication leaves it ripe for typographical errors. It's the in-the-moment pace of it.
