A pox on me for not updating the blog in a few days, but the sweltering heat and too much time at work seemed to have zapped my extracurricular creativity. Fear not though, my half dozen readers, as I have a few epistles simmering in my brain pan and will do my best to share them over the weekend. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to venture out into the pungent force-field that is North Carolina's summertime humidity. If you hear a splash, it's just me walking outside. Seeya.
