So, right in the middle of such an exciting blog I'm gone . . . like a ninja into the night. The details are too numerous (and probably boring) to recount in this venue, but the short of it is that we were invited to move from our domicile within a week and the insistence of the invitation prompted immediate action. Additionally, the swift transfer of residential accoutrements prevented the continuation of my blog-gistic activities. I hereby offer my sincerest apologies.
More regular bloging will resume as more regular life resumes. Stay tuned . . .
