Greetings from Michigan

I'm away on a 10-day vacation to a lake in Michigan, where I'm doing a lot of reading, some writing, and a little napping. In the past 48 hours, I've managed to give myself a bad sunburn and mash up my ribs in a waterskiing spill. Could a car crash be next? We'll see.

In the interim, I don't plan to be doing much Cole Slaw blogging. Having just read Warren St. John's very entertaining book Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer, I learned some insights on the contrast between SEC and Big 10 football fans. I'm also anxious to write about The Hold Steady's recent performance at Bowery Ballroom and my ongoing fascination with that band. Alas, these and other posts will wait until later in the week, or for else my return to sweaty, sweltering lower Manhattan.

In the interim, here is a postcard.

Dude, do you go rowing in that skiff?

Indeed. I like a good afternoon row around the lake. (Sky is currently overcast and threatening rain.)
