It's Been a Long Time Baby!

Since January 31?  Wow.  I've been to Topsail twice since then and haven't taken the trouble to make a blog report.  The fact is that I've been very busy doing little or nothing except teaching.  Four courses last term and this one, and in the foreseeable future as well.  Also, work has been steady every day - shall we say staying at a level entirely within my comfort zone. 
Not being one to make idle promises, I see a great opportunity coming on May 15.  The planets are aligning nicely in that: a) it's the end of the pay period at work, b) graduation is May 17, and c) the term break goes between May 17 - June 3.  All together, that means I can quit my day job effective May 15, do the podium thing at graduation on May 17 and then hit the road for the beach, not returning until around June 2 in preparation for class to begin.
Will I do it?  Only time will tell but the attraction is tremendous so stay tuned.
