Thank You and Goodnight

Dear Readers,

The time has come for me to leave Avoiding the Drop.

I would like to thank you for your loyal support and your always civil, insightful, and witty participation in the site- it has made every minute of the last three years worthwhile.

I would also like to thank my fellow writers for always setting the bar at the site high both in terms of content and tone- both have set, and I’m sure will continue to set, ATD apart from other sites.

I hope that in addition to remaining frequent visitors to Avoiding the Drop you will also find time to visit my new project, The Tanner Ba’.
