No, this post is not a tribute to the late cowboy star Roy Rogers, even though I did have a Roy Rogers and Dale Evans lunchbox back in the fifties. I certainly wouldn't be using such a lunchbox today, however, considering that Roy Rogers had the audacity and poor taste to have his faithful horse Trigger stuffed and mounted and displayed in a museum.
At least Roy was considerate enough to wait until Trigger had passed on to Horse Heaven to undertake the mounting and stuffing.
No, this note is rather to acknowledge that I'll be on hiatus from Nouveau Old, Formerly Cute for a little while. It's not that the muse has left me, but she has asked to be traded. (Bada-Bing!) When I line up my new muse, I'm going to be shooting for Sharon Stone. Here's hoping I don't wind up with Sly Stone.
There's lots of people I'd like to thank for their support with the blog, but I'll save that for another time. There is one person specifically who gets a gold star. That's my friend Russell Gayer - a terrific humor writer in his own right - who has been consistently supportive of my writing and has commented on almost every post. Occasionally even positively.
Thank you, sir!
I'll be back. In the meantime, if you want to write to me for any reason you can always reach me through Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org. And I'll still be posting on Facebook and Twitter.
See ya, dudes.
And as Roy Rogers would say, Happy Trails ....
