It's quiet. Too quiet.

I didn't mean to leave the blog alone for this long. I've got a post or two from GW Thomas to put up and a bunch of podcasts to tell you about, but we've been planning a trip that took a lot more preparation than I expected. We're here now though in Tallahassee, Florida, which is my hometown and also where CT from Nerd Lunch lives. Spent some time with him and his family yesterday afternoon and are getting together with them again today, along with Pax from Nerd Lunch and Hellbent for Letterbox. There will be podcasting.

I tell you all that to say that I hope to find some downtime to update the blog a couple of times this week. I expect to; it's just that it's been 25 years since I've been here and there are a lot of folks to see.

I feel like I need to explain that beard. I haven't gone full mountain man, yet. But last Christmas we sent to see Santa at Macy's - as is our annual tradition - and I came away with a job offer for 2016. I didn't realize until right then that being a Macy's Santa was a Bucket List item for me, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity. The one thing I needed to change was to let my beard grow out. I think I'm ready, but it does make me look rather wizardly in the meantime.

That's epic, Michael, along with that beard! I've followed the Nerds, especially CT, for a number of years, and would love to meet him myself. I also follow the Adventure Blog, though I rarely comment, and have noted your absence, and miss your insightful commentary... though you wouldn't know it, as I rarely comment here. Maybe I should, as the Nerds almost never answer me anymore. Or maybe I should step up the level of my comments.

Anyway, good to see you're alive and well, and expect to see you back here soon, Mister. Be safe and have fun, and if you figure out how to combine those two items, I want to hear about it!

The Santa job sounds awesome, as long as you don't abandon the Christmas Carol posts! They are part of my December now, man! Have a great Summer. :)

Jack, unless I've got you confused with someone else, I believe we have another mutual friend in Lee Yawn? I'm having lunch with him on Friday!

Joe, have no fear about the Christmas Carol series. I take my holiday traditions very seriously. :)

Sorry, Michael, don't know Lee. You mentioned my book, Beyond the Rails, in your blog a few months back. I've followed you quietly for quite a while; I plan to up my involvement.
