In the afternoon I walked on the Mustang Trail in Allen. I saw 14 different bird species. Though the weather warmed a good bit, Mustang Creek was still a bit frozen over in places. I saw lots of living creatures, a good sign. i did see one recently-departed Great Blue Heron, who I assumed became a victim to the frigid weather of the past week.
In the afternoon and evening I did a bit of work, and walked a bit in Glendover Park. We watched the Season One Finale to All Creatures Great and Small. I enjoyed the season very well, but I wished it had stayed true to the books. I say that even knowing that Herriott himself freely borrowed old vets' tales and modified real life a good bit to tell his stories. I assume he would be far less Merchant-and-Ivory in his sensibility than I would have done.
I am enjoying "Designing Dragons", the book by Dan Koboldt. I was disappointed to read, however, of a controversy involving Baen Books and its apparent failure to properly moderate a forum. I will continue to read the novel I am reading, but I would like to see fewer such controversies diminish through better handling of such matters,
I made a drawing of an aquarium. from Dreamwidth, because two posts of the same text are twice as nice
