Jon Crispin's Notebook

Another Walk and a Baby

Cris and I took the Olive up into the woods late this afternoon.  Thanks to Sarah, Leonard, and SCJ (all readers of this blog) I think I can safely say that this is a ghost plant (aka Indian Pipe, monotropa uniflora, or monotropa hypopithys).

And there is no doubt this is a dirty yellow labrador retriever .  It hasn’t rained much lately so the woods (is?) are full of lots of mud holes and very little running water.  What is most amazing to me is that within an hour she is completely clean again.

And my lovely niece Heather just had another girl. On Sunday, we got to meet her while she was chillin’ with her big sister.

I am off to the UK on Thursday for some work and some fun.  My great friend John Wilson just sent me this link to a wonderful article on lists.  It is a great story.  He’ll pick me up at Heathrow Friday morning and I can’t wait to see him.
