Good morning and Happy Wednesday, gentle readers. It's the middle of the week yet again -- the Hump Day, as it's more commonly known -- and I just wanted to pop in for a few minutes today to let you know that I'll be off the grid for a few days. The wifey and I are heading into the Great Unknown for a personal escape. As I'm a bit under-the-weather, we'll likely be taking things a lot easier than we had originally intended (getting old sucks, don't let anyone tell you any different), but that should never stop one from escaping the Daily Grindhouse for more colorful pursuits. Don't you worry: if I do and/or see anything really exciting, then I'll be sure to share in this space. Keep your eyes peeled, as they say.
Otherwise, it's grim times, folks.
I don't need to tell you that there are developments in the wide, wide world that never bode well. War is Hell -- truer words have never been spoken and/or written -- and while I do generally try to avoid delving into such complex global matters I'd be remiss if I didn't say minimally that events are in motion that might likely change the face of civilization for certain parts of our Big Blue Marble. It's sad that some feel the need to act out on their violent impulses -- I'll not even try to posit myself as one who understands the complexity of foreign affairs because I'm the last person any of you should be looking to for either a history lesson much less guidance -- but I am all for folks defending themselves against aggression ... whatever that action may entail.
But -- as I said -- that's really not the purpose of this announcement, so I'll let that be.
In the meantime, keep chasing whatever dreams fuel your imagination, folks. So far as we know, this is the only ride we get; and each of us should endeavor to make it one for the history books!
Also ... enjoy the peace and quiet as yours truly tries to catch up on his sleep. Haha!
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing ... thanks for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
