Truck won't crank/start on 1994 Ford Ranger

When I attempted to start my truck this morning, the only response was the "click" of the starter relay in the engine compartment - no apparent response from the starter/solenoid! Relatively new battery is fully charged and starter/solenoid was replaced only 6 months ago. I suspect solenoid/contacts/related connections/wiring, etc. What say you, before I attempt more detailed diagnostics??

Start with making sure the the terminal connections at the battery are clean and tight, then make sure the connection at the starter is tight
