Note to Readers

I am getting ready to jump into the car and drive to Connecticut so no postings this morning. If, after a seven hour drive with a border collie, a black lab, and a St. Bernard, I am not thoroughly - well, not sure how to spell the Yiddish word but here goes - fachadded, I shall post this afternoon.
