here today, here tomorrow

The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!
(The best laid schemes of Mice and Men
oft go awry,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!)
Robert Burns (1759-1796)
from to a mouse

the unexpected trip, unexpectedly vanished. to all the readers who offered warm wishes for safe travels thank you -- I'll hold on to them for when I take my expected trip later in february -- I'm crossing my fingers that those plans won't go awry.

Well, later in February is probably better yet! Let me know if you add Oregon to you itinerary.

Awww shucks! Hope you are not too disappointed.

....and if you get to Orgeon, you might as well continue north! ;-)
