Out of gratitude to loyal readers who’ve become regular visitors to the Idaho Politics blog, I wish to beg your leave today.
I’m heading to Europe with my two kids, who are on their summer breaks from college. My Spanish-speaking son will lead the way in Spain, my Italian-speaking daughter in Italy. (In anticipation of the jokesters, yes, I know, I barely speak English!)
We’ll be in Madrid, Barcelona and Menorca in Spain; Lecce, Otranto, Venice and Ferrara in Italy. My daughter has been studying at the University of Ferrara on an exchange program.
I’m leaving my house, cat and garden in capable hands and hope to return to early potatoes, greens, carrots and tomato vines full of promising fruit.
Finally, I have an assignment I hope readers will enjoy upon my return. I’ll be covering the June 29 visit of Public TV’s “Antiques Roadshow” to Boise and the preparations necessary to produce the hit program. Look for my story in the June 30 Statesman.
Meanwhile, have a great Memorial Day and start of summer.
