I, your Blogger, per ardua ad alta, am about to embark upon a hazardous and technically unexplainable journey into the outer stratosphere…to confer, converse, and otherwise hobnob with my brother writers. And I hereby decree that until what time, if any, that I return David, by virtue of his highly superior brains, shall rule in my stead, assisted by the Steve, by virtue of his magnificent heart, and Harriet, by virtue of her courage.

Obey them as you would me.

Yep. Time go to back to the metaphorical Kansas.  I am retiring from SBM.  Thanks to one and all. Maybe we will meet again.
