Ending it all…

Despite what I said a couple days ago about not leaving the Planet Ann Arbor for the rest of the weekend, I got antsy yesterday afternoon and proposed the idea that we head over to Phyllis Haehnle Audubon Sanctuary this afternoon.

Haehnle is a place where Sandhill Cranes stop on their way south for the winter. Usually, the cranes come in to this area as a flock. They lower their landing gear and land on the Haehnle marsh. We drive to Haehnle almost every year. I think we missed last year and maybe even the year (or two) before that. It’s been a while. This year, the cranes are not stopping in the sanctuary so much because the the water levels in the marsh are too high. It’s okay. They are finding other places to go.

Ending it all? I have been following the Penn State stuff. Can we please stop elevating boys who play sports into the position of god before they are able to even balance a blasted checking account? I don’t even want to try to repeat what the GG has to say about it but we are totally on the same page. After almost 30 years, I am so happy I am not married to a damn neanderthal.

    One of my co-workers flew to New Mexico today. He plans on visiting Cranefest while there. They are expecting 14,000 Sandhill Cranes this week. He reneted a super-uber-sized lens for this trip. I am green with envy.

    Yes, and can we please stop deifying sports programs that are rampant with all sorts of abuses and totally incompatible with academics?

    Didn’t we three go there? On a snowy day? Sunny, snowy day? Don’t know when, though…but loved it!
