I am moving from Washington DC to the Midwest over the next two weeks, and for those of you loyal to my blog and who follow my postings, I apologize for the hiatus. I managed to blog during the weekend of my first born’s arrival (having been holed up in a hospital room with little to do for four days), but it seems that the packing up of my possessions is taking every last minute these days.
Usually such a break spells doom not only for the habit of blogging, but the patronage of readers like you. To keep me honest, here are some of the posts waiting in the queue, after my hiatus and relocation ends:
A Night on Nicolette–recollections of the night life of Minneapolis
The Arch–Eero Saarinen and St. Louis
This is the Place–My love-hate relationship with the Mormon Mecca–Salt Lake City
Cheyenne Frontier–A quick visit to Wyoming, the Egg and I, and recollections with former Governor Jim Geringer
Archie McPhee and Me–Ever been a “kid in a candy store?” Seattle’s landmark junk shop offers up bacon scented paper, larger than life cockroaches and every bit of junk “made in China” that you don’t need, but can’t live without.
Harbor Walk: San Diego–the ghost ships in the harbor, the USS Midway, and a not-so-bad fish and chips stand.
Voices of the Past: Orwell and Hitchens on Tea
Texan Thermopylae—The Alamo, San Antonio and the Riverwalk
Senate Bean Soup–By a resolution of Congress, white bean and ham hock soup has been served every day in the Capitol since the 19th century.
Rockefeller’s Cleveland–The richest man in history called Cleveland, Ohio home. Yes, Cleveland.
Taliesin West–To understand Frank Lloyd Wright, you really need to visit the places he called home. How a childhood gift of wooden triangles made for America’s most famous architect.
As the old timey disk-jockeys used to say, “Catch you on the flip side.” I should be back at this in two weeks. And as always, if you like what you have read, tell your friends!
