Satchel played hooky from school today and we went to the newly reopened Japanese Tea Gardens, Half-Price Books, Tomatillos for lunch, and the plastination exhibit at The Witte (and the Treehouse). A plexiglass case w/someone's skin (face and feet and all) laying in it is my idea of a fun day. It really was an interesting exhibit though and I learned a few things about human anatomy I didn't know. Pretty cool plastination-like pose eh?
Baby cardinal update: The babies were there one day, gone the next (like on the 5th day!) I did spot one of them in the yard and tried to get a few pics but they weren't too good; I might post a pic, or maybe not if they're too blurry (he was hopping around a lot). I hope Nigel never gets one of them, being the bird and squirrel killer he is. Ever seen a cat throw a squirrel in the air as if playing w/a rag doll? Another fun image I have tucked away to accidentally remember when I'm not expecting it.
