Dear reader,

This blog is on holiday for Thanksgiving week. In the meantime, I invite you to visit the “oakies at home” blog (in blog roll at right), to see how the young ladybug and her exiled hunter husband are doing in their quest to host Thanksgiving dinner for all of her family and half of DC.

If you are a thug and feel like robbing my house while I am not blogging, please do not bother because 1) someone is still here 2) we have an alarm 3) we have no television 4) the most valuable thing is my bike and it is in the garage at my office, so there.

So really, it will be a whole lot of trouble for nothing.

I hope to see you back at these pages in a week!

your faithful intrepid reporter
