I wonder what the founding fathers wore when they were relaxing. Their version of tennis shoes and shorts.

The Monticello visitors center has a statue of Th. Jefferson, telescope in hand, next to where the
shuttle bus loads. Visitors can stand next to the man, see how they measure up.

hand on the Bible
Two Jehovah’s Witnesses dropped by yesterday. They stood on my front porch and talked about Jesus. They read several passages from the Bible.
They were very kind. They left a copy of the Watchtower. They headed on down the road.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. The art of losing isn’t hard to master. Then practice losing farther, losing faster: places, and names, and where it was you meant to travel.. –Elizabeth Bishop, One Art

quercus macrocarpa

Filed under: flora,parts — WmX @ 07:42

The leaves are 7–15 cm (3–6 in) long and 5–13 cm (2–5 in) broad, variable in shape, with a lobed margin. Most often, the basal 60% is narrower and deeply lobed, while the apical 40% is wider and has shallow lobes or large teeth. The flowers are greenish-yellow catkins, produced in the spring. The acorns are very large, 2–5 cm (0.8–2 in) long and 2–4 cm (0.8-1.5 in) broad, having a large cup that wraps much of the way around the nut, with large overlapping scales and often a fringe at the edge of the cup.–Wikipedia
