Riding into the sunrise

So we're on the road again. 

Chaos HQ is heading to the the land of mañana for a spell. Goodness knows where this adventure will go - hopefully not bananas. All I know is there's a little house on the llano, and a hound dog called Elvis waiting for us. Not a bad way to start, I reckon. 

In Girl Scout camp, we used to sing a particular song when it came time to go home from a nice week spent making stuff out of ribbons and hopping around campfires wearing ribbons. A departure lyric rivaled only by Shane MacGowen and Willie Nelson, it goes:

Make new friends, but keep the old - one is silver and the other's gold.

This season of life has been rich in joy, friendship, and human kindness. For these blessings I will always be grateful.

Posting may be moderate to poor for a bit, clearing as boxes do. See you on the other side - till then, may the road rise up to meet you and the sun shine warm upon your face.

To go far is to return.
