Good-bye for a bit

I'm shutting up shop here while Dave and I go to Glasgow for a few days. The weather's supposed to be cold, rainy and windy while we're there, so I'm sure we'll come back with lots of exciting stories about sitting around in pubs. I know y'all can't wait.

I'm turning on the comment filter to head off any spam that might land in my absence, but feel free to chime in and I'll post everything as soon as I get back. Dave will have his magic Blackberry, so you can email me via the link at my Blogger profile.

I can hear Chaya saying, "What about the dogs?" Fear not, our champion house/dog sitter will be in residence, catering to every canine whim. The pack is never that thrilled to see us return, to be honest.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate. Wish me a happy birthday--I'll turn 46 while we're gone.

Here's Dave's favorite farewell song from the inimitable Ella. Enjoy, and I'll be back soon.

Love Ella, but love you more.

[Of course our Maria Misanthrope would HAVE to leave, so that we wouldn't be able to fete her appropriately...HARUMPH. HOW TYPICAL !!!]

Never mind-
Have a marvellous time...
i love you more than cheese.

Love you, too Chaya. I swore I wasn't taking any perfume with me, but I found the little vial of AL Moss you sent and just had to pack it.

Turns out I can moderate comments via email. Who knew?
