Just moseyin' through...

My first impulse was, "Can you dig it?" :) Can't think of many of Mr King's books where that phrase isn't used at least once. As deft as he is with language, that is one verbal (or in this case, written), era-specific tic that has stuck with him.

Two words, though... got me (for now. Though my mind will worry at it like a rat terrier--lol).
