It's not just that I've been traveling (although that put a crimp in posting) or that Mom was visiting and things were on an emotional roller coaster (although that was true). Things have been somewhat off for a year or more.
On the drives between Atlanta and Austin, I had serious down time to think through some posts. When I was in Atlanta I didn't have all the day to day family distractions that I love so much today. And Wolfgang needs his daily visits to the Dog Park, or he'll chew the house to splinters. All of these changes have seriously cut into my "serious blogging".
Apologies to you, dear reader. I do have some topics in mind that are good blog fodder - mostly from reader comments, in fact. Treat this as a plea for help, and leave a comment with a potential topic for a post or three.
Help me, Obi-Wan Reader; you're my only hope.
