Mrs Cleaver Has Left The Beltway

It is one sure sign that this is a week for light blogging. I've got issues, people, issues that interfere with the creative process. It's only temporary, though, and I'm sure I'll get over it. So enough about me, let's look at our surroundings this week.

Earlier this year, June Cleaver After A Six-Pack was the subject of a "Plug This" segment here at mwbh. Since then, our budding Erma Bombeck and her family have moved from the DC area to Nebraska. It probably has something to do with "Mr Cleaver" being in the Air Force, but whatever the reason, she has (re)discovered what other exiled Midwesterners have known all along:

"This morning my husband had to be at an appointment on base at 8 a.m. I set the alarm for 7 a.m. and he was able to shower, have a leisurely and healthy breakfast and arrive at his appointment 10 minutes early. Nice. In DC he would have had to wake up at 5:30 a.m.... Life seems simpler in Nebraska... calmer. I have come to a conclusion as to why life is smooth here and crazy in DC..."

It gets better.

My sister will be moving to DC next year, and I've no doubt that there will be some pretty real culture shock adjusting from life in Cincy to life in the Capital.

Well, Mrs D, maybe you'll finally have an excuse to visit us. In the meantime, tell your sister to look me up, I'm in the book.
