Those among you who are not at the beach, yet or anymore, probably noted that the posting has been rather scarce in the dacha lately.

To make a long story of short postings, well, short, this is what happens when you try to make a living with the design of other people's blogs: the whole barefoot shoemaker story all over again.

I certainly apologize to you, who hit these pages regularly and may develop a growing feeling of frogmanless frustration, but this regrettable state of fact could be a blessing in disguise, as it created the perfect situation for me to enroll you into the following:
I received an email from SlagleRock calling to bloggers and readers
Yesterday I wrote a post inspired by Mamamontezz and SPC Joe Roche. After writing this post I received a couple of trackback pings and some very nice comments from readers and other bloggers.

I was talking to Denita of Who Tends The Fires and was inspired to make this posting a much larger event. 'Nita said that she wished she knew a way to get the letters to the troops.

I have that way. A close personal friend is about to embark on his first deployment to the Middle East. Lets send him off with some words of inspiration!
I therefore respectfully suggest that you briefly stop trying to read what I'm not writing here, go there, read the whole thing, and write with your hearts and minds to the troops in Iraq.

Bloggers are encouraged to blog their letters (and please trackback), while readers please post it in the comments.

J'ai bien conscience qu'il s'agit là de la colonne en français, mais je vais néanmoins continuer en anglais:

If you care to show your support to the American troops in Iraq, now is the time, here is the way.

"...may develop a growing feeling of frogmanless frustration..." Ooh yes doctor, I've got that symptom alright. But it's no blessing, it's like a gaping hole in the fundament. Glad you've been busy though.
