Hello, all.

I'm going to do something I haven't done in my two and half years of doing this blog. I'm going to take a few weeks off.

I'll return on July 1st with a brand new Suburban Man column. The rest of the columns will return after that.

All three boys are home for the summer--which is a difficult transition for me. I have a foolproof method of silencing the noise, but as you can see, it's going to take me some time to make it through my personal stash of "soundproofing."

See you in a few weeks.

P.S. Just One Bad Century will carry on without me. This Week in 1908 will be about a UFO in Russia, The Nickname is Crime Dog, The Tale will be about two balls in the game at the same time, the mustache belongs to a backup shortstop from 1985, and Sights and Sounds will have lots of great videos and audio. Plus, I've written three blog entries about the Cubs that will post at the JOBC blog during the week (including one about the Cubs/Sox rivalry), and I've even recorded a video about the Ryne Sandberg game (which I attended on June 23, 1984).
