My fellow port-swillers may well be asking themselves, “What is this uncharacteristic silence? Has something happened to Tom?”

Be at ease.  I haven’t been posting this week simply because I’ve been a tad under the weather.  A bit of the ol’ sleep-which-ravels-up-the-something-sleeve-of-care, or however it goes, and I feel better.

And now for something completely different:  Of late, on a whim I have taken to referring to the kitchen counter as the food preparation surface.   As in, “Please do not leave purses or other personal items on the food preparation surface.”

This little idiomatic indulgence seems to annoy Mrs. R somewhat, but I find in it a certain amount of simple amusement.
