Excuse me for not mentioning that Ashes & Water was taking a bit of a summer vacation. Thing is, I really didn’t know I was going on vacation myself, but here it is a month and a half since my last post. It’s been a busy couple of months with Professor Fury & Contessa throwing the last Poolapalooza, a trip to South Carolina for fun with the cousins and Maddie Potter moving into the Yellow(ish) House on Morning Glory. But after this weekend’s sojourn to Orange Beach with the Underpass Gang, which I’m out the door for in just a few minutes, vacation is over and I’ll be back in the keyboard powered saddle, whipping this thing for all it’s worth. With the Braves hardly ever playing on TBS anymore it’s been a rather sports starved summer and so it seems that the arrival of football season is even more welcome than it normally is, which is saying a lot. I’ve been following the Saint’s training camp at my alma mater pretty closely this year (I even made it up to Jackson with a Saturday scrimmage), especially with the aid of fellow Millsapian DeMeat’s very thorough training camp expose.
