This ain't gonna be the last time that you hear about it on the ol' blog here, either. Just want to get the word out before summer vacation plans and a destination is needed.

I've been a bit mired is one of life's quicksand puddles and have had very limited access to a computer since I've been back from Chicago and will re-cap our time in that wonderful city as soon as someone tosses me a longer rope so I can pull myself back onto solid land. Let me just say the Filsko/Noden & Jim Liban Trio was fine, fine, fine. My son loved the Blue Man Group mucho better. Not enough for now--but all I've got time to type. Stay tuned.
