Greetings from Vacationland


You know how all the good office scandals break on the week you are out sick?  Well, pity poor old Father Anonymous, on a family vacation during both party conventions.

But don't spare too much pity! The Web's crankiest clergyman (sub-five-three division) has been having a grand old time in the Adirondack Mountains, lazing idly dockside while keeping one eye open for bears.  He is looking forward to a couple of days on eastern Long Island, as he tracks the dreaded Montauk Monster to its lair.

So, although a post or two may appear online today, please accept our apologies for not giving America's two worst political parties their just desserts.  It's hard on us, too, especially after what David Brooks called Romney's "borderline insane" speech last night.

Looking forward to your in-person on-the-scene report of all things monsterian --long island division.

Just catching up on some blog reading as I listen to the wild winds outside and hope (pray?) that the power doesn't go out again.

Where, exactly, do you go, when in the ADKs? Did you see any bears? ;-) And did you make it back to the Church of the Transfiguration? I was happy to be there on 2 Sundays. And got to swim in my most favorite lake at my most favorite ADK beach - Blue Mtn, of course.

PS, Oh, And I enjoy your political/theological observations and musings.

Indeed I did make it to Transfiguration, although only once all summer -- the week after they called Chip Kidd, so there was still excitement in the air. And the air itself was uncommonly beautiful!

We spent most of our time at my parents' camp, in Sabael, with smallish detours for light hiking, a short sail, and a grand day with our 18-month old at the museum.

But we never drive past the library without thinking of your folks, and last summer we walked down to their place just to look around and reminisce.
