O.K. I finally got around to it. It was that I couldn't find a clever enough name for this blog . . . the reason I only am just now setting it up. Several months ago, I was making all these elaborate plans to use it to chronicle our drive up through Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York (did I miss one? Nope, think I got 'em all) and into Canada. I was gonna make it educational, witty, informative, and . . . well, something that some future historian would come across in fragments off the half-melted hard drive of some server buried in an iceberg, and say "Wow! Those humans really led stimulating lives." Yeah, RIGHT! Ha, ha!
So, within every procrastinator is one big, ridiculous ego!
Now that I have reminded myself of the fact that, even though the Internet has the potential to allow everyone to watch one's performance, it's very, very, very unlikely much of anyone will, I will commence writing about the mundane and make observations of interest really only to Alex, Emily & myself - and of partial interest to all our friends and loved ones. (I mean, you all have lives - and busy ones at that.) This is mostly just a way for us Chapmans to sort of "bump into" y'all on occasion, share whatever is happening between our respective sets of ears at that particular moment in time, and continue to weave those passing thoughts of each other into our respective life tapestries. (Yeah, the preceding gaggle of words simply meant: "I want to stay in touch.")
So if you can find a moment or two to occasionally read this, that would be great. Comments about what's going on with you and the family back home would be even better!
