Author's Notes:
I wrote this on the way home from a great weekend in Dallas, where we enjoyed wonderful hospitality at Mimi Roger's Mom's hacienda. The cross trail to the swing leaves the heads with an ultra-short swing, as they need to move on to B1, but the sides can cheat and swing longer. This works well to a C-rag or march.
