Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Our Holiday Season is over after its usual 22-day run.

Rosh Hashanah - the Jewish New Year.
Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement.
Sukkot - the week-long Feast of Tabernacles.
Shemini Atzeret - the day after Sukkot, a holiday in its own right.
Simchat Torah - completing the annual cycle of Torah readings and beginning anew, moving seamlessly from the death of Moses atop Mount Nebo to the story of Creation.

That’s five holidays in just a little over three weeks.  It’s a tad exhausting.  Combine that with visits from the makhetunim (in-laws), my brother (the Other Elisson!), Elder Daughter, and the Mistress of Sarcasm (who will be here for the remainder of the month), plus my sixtieth birthday, and it has been a very busy few weeks.

The Mistress of Sarcasm and Elder Daughter.  We actually had the two of them together in one place for an all-too-brief three days.

Now life can settle down to a semblance of normalcy... until our next adventure, that is!

Will I be seeing you in Tennessee, and will you be bringing your lovely esposa?
Red is going to try very hard to make the trip this year. No promises of course.

That's the operating plan, K-Nine. Hope the legendary Red can make it this time... it promises to be a gas!
