Dormant; Not Dead, But Changing

This old blog has been suffering from an abundance of inactivity lately, I know. There's a reasonably good reason for this, at least in my mind: I've been making major life changes. While I rarely post much 'personal blogging', I'll share this update.

For a variety of reasons, I've moved from my beloved Flagstaff, AZ, to Minnesota. It was a difficult decision, as I have many dear friends in Flag. Not to mention Minnesota winters, which I'm not really looking forward to. But after 17 years in Flag (city motto: poverty with a view), my life had become quite stagnant. Here in Minnesota I've got good job prospects and a good woman to share my life with. And I really needed to get out of the rut my life was in.

I have no idea whether this change will lead to more blogging or even less, but at least the politics will be better. Heck, in the senate alone I just traded John McCain and Jon Kyl for Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken. Which is a damn good trade when you think about it.

The best of luck to you. Next Friday I'm driving away after 20 pretty decent years.

Winters in Flagstaff could be pretty brutal, so I think you won't suffer that much more in Minnesota. Happy Trails to You!

Best of luck to ya and good on ya for finding a woman who will put up with yer ass!

Kind of a bit of irony, I just married a damn good woman who I have known for 28 years and she is originally from Minna-sota.

Please try not to freeze your nuts off and for fucks sake, keep blogging.

I actually wandered over here to ask about some good places for libations and baseball in Flag...I'll be up this weekend during the NLDS and was hoping for another friendly DBacks fan :)

But, instead, good luck and best wishes on the move! Hope everything goes well.

Congratulations! I've been to both and met nice people and had good food, so what more can you want? Have fun!

Scott...sorry I missed you before you left as Montana just would not let go of me. And even though I've returned to Flagstaff, Montana still has me in it's grip. Our circumstances have some parallel similarities. May we both find happiness in their outcomes.

Oh, and cellogirl, glad you're now able to go. Go to the Green Room, tell them that you're a friend of "Scott", and they'll put the game on any TV you wish.
