I feel bad in a way that I don’t have a video to share with you today as the next Saturday Matinee. I just don’t have the footage. I had hoped to get out to Roundrock before this, but the hunting season and family obligations have conspired against me.
I have found it odd that the few posts that I have put up on my Yahoo! Video page have drawn more views than the posts to this blog that featured them. Can’t explain that. I plan to load the other, past videos that I had posted on YouTube so that all of my video glory can be appreciated in one place.
Tonight is the big KU versus MU game in Kansas City. It’s hard to believe that a local college rivalry could have found a place on the cover of Sports Illustrated. My nephew from MU arrived today to go to the game and sleep at our house. He’s a good kid, of course, and he insists I’m his favorite uncle, so there’s that too. I don’t have much interest in the game, though #2 Son, Adam, is attending KU Medical School, but they consider themselves apart from the “other” KU.
The photo above is just a random shot. It was part of my series of attempts to capture the blueness of the October sky, but this one looks more gray than blue. The shot was taken down in the pecan plantation, looking north. You can just distinguish the road leading out of the plantation on the lower left. It’s not the most exciting photo I’ve put here, but it makes me nostalgic nonetheless. And I know of one woodpecker who likes pix of hardwood trees.
