Well, folks, it’s time to hit the road. I’ll be leaving work shortly, and thence off to Ireland for a week. I’ll try and finish out NaBloPoMo tomorrow if it can be managed (hence the part one in the title here) … and one hopes for wireless (perhaps free wireless) intermittently throughout the trip, so I’m not sure what to expect.

I’ll be really disappointed if I am not briefly and charmingly stopped on a road by some cows, let me just say.

To give the proper nerdy flavor to this post, we’ll end with a bit of the old JRR …

‘It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,’ he used to say. ‘You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off.’ The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien
