The Random Comic Strip

Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Trippin' and such

I am going away for a few days. It seems like this is happening quarterly now. We are off to Biloxi... again... where Faye will while away the time firmly planted in front of a slot machine or twelve while I will maybe play a little golf (weather permitting), read a book, and just basically kick back.

This has become our routine of late. It's slightly less expensive than it sounds. Faye gets comped rooms because they have her pegged as a gambling addict at a couple of places in Biloxi and I get to go along... whether I want to or not. Somebody has to drive her there, I suppose.

Usually, I write to the blog each day while gone. I think I will forego that this time. I will drag my laptop with me and I might forego my foregoing if I think of, or observe, something intriguing enough. But I wouldn't count on it. Instead, I will likely not blog again until Monday (the 14th) of next week. Since the blog goes mostly unread anyway, I suspect few will notice or be impacted.

This is like something I used to do at work... Call in "well", as in "I feel too good to waste it at the office." I am even thinking of playing no golf so the tendinitis in my left arm abates. The soreness doesn't hurt my game (you have to actually have a game for that to happen) but it does bother me now an then.

Tendinitis is an ache that is telling you that you shouldn't be doing whatever is causing it. It's telling you to stop doing whatever it is before the condition becomes worse or chronic. It's sneaky, though. Whatever is causing it may not be all that obvious but what makes it flare up is. I could have stretched a tendon a bit too much doing something other than golf and golf is just when I notice it. That's not that likely since I rarely do anything strenuous at all other than golf... but it is possible.

In any event, those are my plans for the next 5 days. While I am gone, I expect you all to be on your best behavior.

Do not take my lack of commenting on not reading your blog. I read them all but as I mentioned before, my lack of witty comebacks do not match yours .... so I lurk and remain silent. Have a safe trip

Have a great time and don't worry about us. Actually, I'm leaving on Thursday and will be gone for five days. I haven't figured out if I'll blog or not. I'm flying to Isla Mujeres, off the coast of Cancun for a niece's wedding. Here's hoping we both have a great time.
