SEE YOU IN A BIT

I have been blogging for just short of eight years.  In that time, I have written on line a quarter million word autobiography, another quarter million words of extended essays, and uncounted numbers of words of commentary on the passing scene.  I am now eighty-three years old, and I am tired, written out for the moment.  I am also just now managing a move from a condominium apartment to a continuing care retirement community.  I have decided therefore to take a break from blogging for a week or two.  We move on June 28th, and go to Paris for a two-week break on July 12th.  Unless something titanic of a political sort happens in the interim, I shall return to blogging at some time between the 28th and the 12th.  The world will get along quite nicely without me, I imagine.

Enjoy your break, Prof, and safe travels!

The world may be able to get along without you but what about your fans?

When I was blogging, I took breaks with some frequency. This break that you are taking is completely understandable.

June 28th, 1914, was, I believe, the date of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo. I trust your move will be unaffected by that fact. ;)

Have a good break, and enjoy Paris. We'll look forward to having you back.

I'm sure you'll have something to say in the next couple of weeks! If not, your loyal readers will be waiting.

Yes, indeed, enjoy a well earned break.

Let me add, selfishly however: BUMMER!

Good luck with the move! We'll miss you.

I've been commenting on the Internet for over a decade. In that time, I have written an Internet hoax that made its way around the globe a couple of times. I've written over six hundred million words, along with over seventy billion spelling, typographical and grammatical errors, not to mention innumerable misunderstandings, false starts, subject matter errors and outright falsehoods. I've deleted about as many comments. However, I know that the moment anyone steps back to take stock of their accomplishments, they're finished. The conscientious keep producing--no excuses. Unless it happens to have been what I've managed to show for myself, in which case, I'm also taking a break.

I'll miss your blogging as well as the interchange of comments that it stimulates.

I hope that the move goes smoothly.

I am slow sometimes but the reason Trump required his cabinet to spout such nonsensical praise has become apparent to me because of your announcement here. After stating how blessed I was to serve as your reader, my fortunes are tied to yours and my credibility elsewhere as a commenter is shot. You taking a break has doomed me. Hopefully, you will return soon in which case the praise will be redoubled. If not, I will have to pretend it was some other Jerry Brown who wrote that. You know, I think it was that guy in California now that I consider it...

Best of luck and come back soon- that guy in the governor's office is going to need you now :)

Enjoy your break, and enjoy Paris! We'll miss you and look forward to your return.

"See you in a bit"
Please, Professor, make that 'bit' as little as possible, please.
With kind regards,
