Just Blowing Smoke will be taking a brief hiatus while I take care of some personal obligations, relocate to more familial environs, recharge my batteries, and take up the long overdue quest to rediscover some creativity. Have no fear however. Regardless of the requests of some to make this departure of a more permanent nature, Just Blowing Smoke will be returning to tilt at windmills before you know it ... 

I can think of no more fitting way to begin this latest transition in life than with one of my favorite quotes from Tom Stoppard: 

"We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered."

I miss you already. I have so enjoyed your blog and newspaper entries. I hope you will keep Toledo informed of your whereabouts through future writings. Best wishes on the move!

Just popping in to let you know that I'm still thinking of you. And, hoping all is well.

In your absence to whom should I direct inane "Higgins vs. Magnum" comments?

Hey, call me. There's something I want to discuss with you.
