There may be lots of empty chairs on the porch this week. I won't be occupying mine very often, either. What with vacations, illness, or deadlines, we're going to be missing some people for a little while. But the rocking chairs and the porch swing are available, there's coffee and tea inside, and blogworld exists where it is not 99 degrees in the shade. Enjoy. I'll drop in whenever I can. . .
