Gone....

... and with this, gentle rubberneckers, we are off again towards Scotland........ we'll be back on the 15th of October.....

... that said, we're expecting quite a crowd here at The Compound for the annual get-together...... The Hysterics at Eric's, as some like to call it, is just around the corner........... and for all who haven't heard, it is the weekend of the 26th, 27th, and 28th of October........ if you'd like to come and visit and haven't been on the distribution lists, drop me a line and I will send you directions on where to find us....... if you aren't a serial killer, we'd be glad to have you over for a few games of billiards and some adult beverages....... if you ARE an internet nut job, well, we're all likely to be heavily armed......... so, you are warned........

...... I'm off.....
