Straightlaced Saturday — Cornelis Drebbel 24

Saturday, December 29 , 2018  Here we are, in that limbo between Christmas and New Year’s.  It’s still a festive time, but it is rather a “between” time.  However, the #SteamPunk train has arrived at the platform and we’re ready for another chapter of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers.  Although the mode of transportation … More Straightlaced Saturday — Cornelis Drebbel 24
