The Summer of Ought-Five

OK, THIS IS officially turning out to be a crappy summer. There are many reasons for this, ranging from the heat and humidity to the surgery I had in June to some personal issues which have cropped up lately, but trust me: for whatever grand karmic reason, this is the worst summer I've had in -- Jesus, years.

Unfortunately, it's also left me in a position where -- for the time being -- I can't devote the time to the blog that I once did. This is NOT to say that I intend to close up shop -- I have no such intention -- but I am going to have to take an extended vacation from it while I deal with these issues which have cropped up. I just need a break to deal with these other matters.

I can assure everyone this is nothing to be concerned about, but if this does happen to concern you, feel free to drop me a line and I'll be happy to explain further. As for me, I would think I'll be back sometime around August 15 but no later than Labor Day.

Until then -- thanks, everyone, for reading, and see 'ya round.

Good things are worth waiting for. The Daily Rant is an outstanding read. I will eagerly await the return of some new blog entries later this summer.

Sorry to hear this summer is going so poorly -- I certainly hope it turns around soon. I will wait anxiously for the return of the Rant. In the meantime, I am thankful to know you well enough to at least be able to imagine what you might rant about certain issues and news items. :-)

Take care my friend. I look forward to your triumphant return to the world of blogging. All the best ole' boy.

Maybe your summer is going poorly because of your using the Lord's name in vain!

Repent, confess your sins, devote every waking moment in your summer to God, and only then will your summer fill you with joy.

I hope all works out brother Ben!
