Gone fishin'.

Each year around this time, the whole family gathers at St. George Island (part of what I would call The Real Florida) for a few days of R&R. Miami Beach, Delray Beach, Clearwater Beach, even Panama City Beach, this ain't. St. George is a place you go to get away from people, not to be around them. My brother is currently serving us proudly in Afghanistan, so he won't be there. But his family will, and he'll be home for Thanksigiving, so we'll gladly make that trade.

At any rate, by the time you read this, I will have been in the lovely Florida Panhandle for two days, and I guess this has all just been a long way of telling you why none of the links are from Thursday or Friday. Enjoy the weekend!
