Today was one of those days when I would have, in hindsight, left the camera at home. I might have, in fact, left ME at home too: the wind was pretty wild and it sure stirred up pollen. I'm now itchy-eyed and sneezy. Ah well.

Still, I tried to make a few photos. Here's a first shot.

Eleven. Miles.

I'm just a little tiny bit tired, but now I must head to the stores and get errands done.

Because I Think of Them as Male ... (see what I call this image)

… even though I realize there are black widows and not widowers. It’s just the way my brain works. Dogs are male. Cats are female. Lizards are male. Birds are female.

Clearly a fork should be male and a spoon female and they say it’s the opposite!), so there you go.

I’m looking at a backpack. Yes. Backpack. As it turns out I’m going on a pack trip for the first time in over thirty years. Or make that thirty-five. I’m looking at the Flipside Trek BP 450 AW by Lowepro. It looks like it might just be the bag for me: it…
