Having looked at this...

...on one side of our campsite, and this...

...(Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, recently re-introduced into the region) on the other, I'd still much prefer to be looking at all of that than all I've missed, or tried to, over the last week.

But, alas, I'm finally back in L.A. after many weeks on the road, and will begin to put my head back on over the next day or three. Feel free to let me know in comments about anything you think I may have missed and why any of it actually matters.

My eternal thanks to Ernie Canning for his tremendous efforts over the past week --- both as blogger and lone BRAD BLOG babysitter --- and, for more than anything really, allowing me the incredibly rare gift of being able to look the other way for a few, if not nearly enough, days. Thank you, amigo! Feel free to stand down unless and until you're ready to keep slogging the good fight...
