The blog is finding that everyday life is full of opportunities for observation, and is in serious danger of falling behind...even with no walk on Friday (because the blog can't walk and drink wine at the same time), there's still much to note. First, Sandy cat is gradually making friends with her official BeeSpace honey bee. Second, many mailboxes in the area south of Hanes Mall Boulevard have highly unusual attachments. Third, a trip to one of Susan's favorite restaurants (the Saigon, in Greensboro) on Saturday was preceded by the blog's first exploration of Greensboro's extensive greenway system. Jon photographed this "natural arch" on the Nat Greene trail.
