Wading Deer

Saturday afternoon after we left the vet's office, I went for a walk on the Cottonwood Creek South Trail in Allen. This trail had few people on it. Two who were on it were a grown man and a little boy, each of whom was riding an off-road motorcycle. The boy's motorcycle was very small. I do not like it when people put motorized vehicles on the non-motorized paths. But I understood why they chose this hot, quiet day as a day for a trail transgression. I walked and thought of our dog Beatrice.

Saturday afternoon we met our friends Scott and Donna at Season 52 in Plano. The food was great. Then we went to the Angelika film theater. This was our first movie since the pandemic began in March 2020.  We saw Edgar Wright's documentary "The Sparks Brothers." I have been a Sparks fan since I saw them on a late-night concert show when I was 14 years old  They sang two songs from Kimono My House that night--"This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us" and "Talent is an Asset" (which I misheard as "Terence is on Acid" that first night).
The film caught everything I like about the band, and was amusing. The brothers Mael proved to be interesting subjects.

Sunday I went to the Heard Museum Natural Science Center. I hoped to see an Indigo Bunting or a Prothonotary Warbler. But I saw neither. Two young boys walking on the wetlands boardwalk with their parents pointed out to me something interest. A deer waded nearly shoulder-high in the water seeking foraging for lake weeds. I do not often see deer at the Heard. I loaned the boys my binoculars so that they could get a better look.

Monday I worked to meet deadlines. Then I walked in Allen Station Park and, with my wife on the Cottonwood Creek Trail.
