    A Farewell Ode (Well temporary anyway)

    After two years of helming LL

    our erstwhile blogger, Sally-
    bids us goodbye … in Frenglish.

    Her services terminated,

    the self-styled terminator

    walks out with a swagger

    a la Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    "She's Got a New Spell" by Billy Bragg

    ...The laws of gravity are very, very strict
    And you're just bending them for your own benefit

    One minute she says
    She's gone to get the cat in
    The next thing I know
    She's mumbling in Latin
    She cut the stars out of the sky
    And baked them in a pie

    She stole the scene and scenery
    The script and the machinery

    That's how I know
    She's got a new spell
    Yes, that's how I know
    That she's got a new spell

    FNX played the song during lunch, and it just made me think of Sally...

    We had no horses
    Our sister was a week's ride away
    Her hearth rose from prayers

    "Oh, all the friends that e'er I had
    They are sorry for my going away
    And all the girls that e'er I loved
    They would wish me one more day to stay.
    But since it falls unto my lot
    That I should rise - and you should not -
    I gently rise, and softly call:
    Good night, and joy be with you all."

    --"The Parting Glass"

    Sally- felt the going away almost too much to speak of it. Her dejection was most evident. She sat really lost in thought for the first few minutes; and when rousing herself, it was only to say,

        "Of all horrid things, leave-taking is the worst."

        "But you will come again," said Gracie and Jane. "This will not be your only visit to Love Letters."

        "Ah! (shaking her head) -- the uncertainty of when I may be able to return! I shall try for it with a zeal! It will be the object of all my thoughts and cares!"

    (Best wishes to you, Sally-.   Jane Austen and I will miss you!)

    I think Louisianna's new anthem will be "Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley"...
