I can’t remember the last time I took an entire week away from work. I’ve taken as many as four consecutive weekdays off before, and an entire span from one weekend to the next?

Well, that’s been a minute. It might have been in the spring of 2010.

This week, in addition to a point of historical note, we’re headed to the big D. No, not Dallas or

De Kalb. Or would that be the big O, as in Orlando?

Tank is on his tractor back home.

He turns 90 in a few weeks.

Happy Mardi Gras to you.

And you.

And you?  Yes, especially you.

Somebody named Bob Lee posted this image on Pinterest. Let’s go back a century to the village of Mamou, Louisiana for a look at this occasion.
