So I've gotten a bunch of emails from folks wondering if I've disappeared off the face of the earth.
Short answer: No.
Long answer: November 11th was The Big Move. Between packing, moving, and unpacking (although that's *hardly* finished), this sucked up every spare second of the entire month of November. Add to that the fact that M. and I were out of town for Thanksgiving and a week on either side, and you've got a recipe for a nervous breakdown.
I've got plenty more stories coming up about The Old Man, so stay tuned!
