The car and family are packed as we head out for the holiday. Blogging will likely be light through the weekend, although I suspect I will not be able to resist doing a reprise of my Giving Thanks post from last year. Also, I hope to find some time during the long weekend to complete the next installment of my "Dead Booker walking?" series.
