The Old Paths Blog is Finis(hed)?
The old D.R. over at "The Old Paths" is bluffing. Seems he liked the relaxed pace of vacation a little too much and decided to throw in the towel on the blog.
Thing is, in an ultra-private email to me, he confirmed this was just a hoax - a "fake hang-up" Dr. Leo Marvin. In fact, D.R. told me in the strictest of confidence that if he gets 20 comments on his "Finis" post, he will pick up the shovel again and get back to work.
So, I urge all 9 of my readers to head over to The Old Paths and let Mr. Brooker know how much you want him to continue. Just don't tell him I sent you!
UPDATE MARCH 20, 2007: D.R. has selfishly closed off all comments on his blog. But if you would like to leave a kind encouragement to the hermit, you may feel free to do so here. Because that's just the kind of great guy I am!!
