Corporal Graff here, reporting that I won’t be reporting for duty next week; I’ll be on furlough. (Is that the same thing as shore leave? What if you’re already on shore? Does that mean I can spend the week on the lake? Tell me!)
Anywho, while I’m drinking rum out of a coconut (or coffee from an insulated travel mug), the new gang of bloggers will be holding down the fort. (In keeping with the nascent nautical theme I’m developing here, I should have called them a press-gang.) I haven’t been blogging all that much lately anyway. Hmm . . . wonder why that is? I’ll try to do better when I get back to shore.
