How To Lose Blog Readers

Step 1: Stop posting anything related to what your blog is about.

Step 2: Then, just stop posting.

Step 3: That’s it. You’ve succeeded!


If you’re still out there, thanks for bearing with us while we get our act together.  We’ve been back in the U.S. for two months now, and will return to South America (and blogging) next week.

We had lots of things on our to-do list while back in the U.S. and I think we’ve done most of it. One of the things on the list was rest… that one will have to wait until later.

We did get to spend lots of time with family and friends – that was number one on the list. We went on a big extended family trip to Belize and Mexico. Went to California. I worked – a lot. Angela went to New York. Bode went to summer camp. NASA. Climbed all over a submarine.  Went down a five-story drop water-slide. Finished his 3rd Harry Potter book. Movies, park, museums, etc. We did our normal Texas loop – Houston – Galveston – Austin – Lake Conroe – and back – multiple times, not necessarily in that order. Of course, we ate too much. There was lots more stuff I can’t even remember – and we’re getting used to traveling without a camera. Bode even managed to win a dance contest somewhere in there.

So, that’s our vague summer wrap-up.  The only thing left to do is to stuff all of our worldly possessions into three duffel bags and get on a plane.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…

    Lose your followers? No way! Figured you all needed a true vacation from the vacation/road trip/way of life … Always checking in from time to time knowing you’ll be dusting off the cobwebs on Red Beard soon & heading into the sunset … Oh, wait, that’s probably the sunrise….

    Happy Trails to yooooooooo!
