I don't want get all drama queen-y here, but I think it's time for my last round, gang.
I've just got enough going on that the zest has gone out of the lemon around the old 'Pub. Between my work (I'm starting on with a new outfit next week) and my family I'm busy in Real Life, and the new soccer season is starting up, so I have not just the Portland Timbers but a new season of covering our women's team the Portland Thorns for the local footy blog Slide Rule Pass. Throw in all that to the plain fact that I'm just not feeling the geopolitics and military affairs so much anymore, and rather than hang around like a sad old bag trying to eke out one more season I think it's best that I make a clean break.
I'll check in every so often to see what y'all are talking about and may have something to say once in a while. But from where the sun now stands, I will write here no more forever.
I do want to thank all here - I won't get all Oscar-night-y and name names but you know who you are - for a hell of a lot of good disputatious fun. Hope you can keep servin' 'em up and the customers libated, and all my best wishes for the future. Keep four yards, gang - don't let one grenade get you all.
