Hear ye! Hear ye! Wonker will be taking a break from the madness starting tomorrow morning, and will be heading off, via southern Virginia and West Virginia, to Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky for a week's vacation. Strange, you say, spending a week at a relatively unknown National Park, Thanksgiving Week at that? Well, yeah, it is strange, but Wonker and Mrs. Wonker, aka the Red Menace, had a use it or lose it week left on a timeshare swap, so carpe diem, to mix a metaphor. The park is one of those weird, magnificent places in America that few people probably visit, so we're going to give it a shot. We don't do photoblogging yet, so we'll debrief upon our return.
Meanwhile, we know we can trust the Mighty Luther to keep up the carping and kvetching while we're off hunting for bats and blind cave fish in Kentucky, although many of these can also be found in abundance on the Democratic side of the aisle back here in DC.
We'll return on November 29, stuffed with turkey, dressing, and probably more than a little stored up bile in contemplation of renewing the armed struggle against the Philistines. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, a Happy Thanksgiving for all!
(PS, looking ahead, we plan to cause a scandal on the net by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas early and often in December, and fully expect to hear from the PC Police and/or the ACLU, the latter probably armed with a cease and desist order!)
