It's back and it's pissed off!
These trips, as the name suggests, are something less than fully enjoyable most years. I have a good time, but they are accompanied by significant physical discomfort. As such, they are both looked forward to and dreaded in equal measures. It is for certain that they are not as uplifting as the trips some other people get to take:
Sadly, this year's trip promises to be even more uncomfortable because my return will be followed immediately by a move to a new apartment where the utilities will not yet be fully connected. As such, much as I am sorry about this, you should all be prepared for an unusally lengthy hiatus in my blogging. My esteemed co-bloggers, of course, may well post but I think most of them have far, far better things to do with their time. You know... like pick lint out of their belly-buttons.
So, aside from the possible, though unlikely, on-the-road post, you shouldn't expect to see anything here for a while. I appreciate your patience, and I'll "see" you
* For those who are curious, my wife is also accompanying me, which will surely improve my lot substantially while worsening hers.
