Not terribly sorry, actually. The Rifftides staff needs a vacation, so we’re taking one. There may be occasional blogging through the magic of digital delays, so please check in once in a while. There’s a Chet Baker piece coming up In a day or two, for instance. If anything of interest takes place or comes to mind along the way, we may overcome the objections of family members who point at the laptop and say, “You’re not taking that thing with you, are you?” We will occasionally examine email messages. We have not determined a return date.
In other words, I’m going to try to make “off” mean “OFF.” In the meantime, please browse the archives by way of the “Search The Site” box (top right) or “Archives” (right column). I will be thinking of all of you whenever I get a chance. See you soon…more or less.
