Escaping the rat race, for a time

Abandoning family and work, I'm off for Whitefish, Mont., for a week of porch-sitting with a friend of 35 years standing. It's an annual thing, with perfect relaxation being the goal.

We'll stare at the mountains, have refreshments and maybe talk, or not. Maybe make the 20-mile run out to Glacier National Park, or not. Maybe ride the gondolas up to the top of Big Mountain, or not. Maybe play a little cribbage, or not.

Maybe I'll bestir myself to make a few posts, or not.

In the meantime, feel free to treat this as an open thread and post something, or not.

If you bent an iron bar a certain way, you'd get an ore knot.

The moving rope knots and knotting not, moves on. And neither all thy piety nor wit can call it back to cancel half a twist nor rub out a twist of it.

I think therefore I am knot.

How is the Whitefish guy? Tell me all about the trip. I think of him often.

The Whitefish guy is doing OK, for an older fella who spent a lot of years in the fast lane.
