The Cookie Jar is officially on vacation. You'll see the occasional tidbit here and there over the next three weeks thanks to Blogger's great "scheduled post" feature, but other then that, things will be a bit sporadic.
Keep an eye on my Twittering-you'll probably see the most action there. I may occasionally get the chance to pop in and actually tell you a story or two from the road, when I can pry the teenagers off the hotel computers and away from their Face book accounts. Last time I couldn't get near the computer because the under 16 set wouldn't back away for longer then 5 seconds.
In the meantime the house sitter has been booked, the Hamster has been dropped off with a caretaker, and we are ready to hit the road.
America....here we come!
