...Well, not really fishing. But TOP will be taking a few days off, until Thursday or Friday, as I begin the task of getting ready for The Big Move II.
If all goes well, tomorrow I'll dig out all the darkroom items I won't be taking with me, and I'll get those listed, for those of you who are waiting for that.
Fortunately, most of the hardest work was done during the last move about a year ago. This time, I hope to double down on my ruthlessness, and give away, throw away, or sell as much as I can, and arrive in New York State traveling relatively light. The new house is small and has relatively little storage space, so happiness is going to depend on efficiency.
I don't own it yet, mind you, but here I am in front of the house I have contracted to purchase:
To address one question about my move that appears to be important to some readers, we next turn to the map:
To determine who I will root for after my move, we need to scrutinize the map carefully. As you'll note, if proximity were the ruling issue here, I would root for the Bills. But of course many people in Buffalo don't even root for the Bills, so I think I'm off the hook on that account. Further study reveals that I am no closer to New York City than I am to Pittsburgh; so as you see the pertinent question does not naturally or inevitably have to be "Giants or Jets?".
After much study and the use of a quadrant, sextant, and calipers with the map spread on a table, not to mention properly calculating the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow, I have determined that after my move I shall be rooting for...
...It stands to logic, right? Makes perfect sense to me at any rate. You know the old expression: You can take the boy out of the NFC North, but you can't take the NFC North out of the boy.
See you in a couple of days,
