The Return Of The Prodigal Wonk

We've arrived at our western home here in California's "Imperial" Valley.

Driving in shifts, the Wonk family covered all 2164 miles in 36 straight hours. There were no unpleasant surprises.

We fondly think of this four-time per year cross-country ordeal jaunt as "Breakfast in Carolina, Dinner in California."

Tomorrow morning, I'll begin a brand new school year.

Which starts with an all-day staff meeting.

Lucky us.

But on the whole it's good to be back in The West...

For one thing, we're that much closer to the September 29th, on which we will be paid for the first time since June 16th.

And for another thing.

After some two months of using an obsolescent "back-up" computer with an ultra-slow dial-up connection deep in the woods of South Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, at least it'll be nice to have access to a more stable publishing platform and a much faster connection so that our blogging addiction posting may return to more normal levels.

Thank goodness for small blessings...
