in the land of cleves (backlog flush #46)

Heading to Cleveland, see some friends, drink to Mo's health with a high school English teacher of mine, maybe see some fireworks...but of course after over a thousand entried without a miss I'm not going to start now, so here's some of my backlog...

What strikes me as odd about this backlog is that it dates back to just when Mo was starting to bring up "The Conversations" last that seems like a long time ago.
