SHREW

Yesterday I got to see a tiny shrew very close-up and it was very exciting.

So I was sitting on a muddy path in a wooded area because of reasons (ok, exhausted after climbing) when I saw movement and a tiny thing scurrying past me. I figured that glimpse was all I'd see, but I turned round to see where it'd gone and it was on the path on the other side of me, and with great caution so as not to startle it I managed to dig my phone out of my coat pocket:

longshot in which a tiny shrew may be visible among rocks and moss

(There's nothing to give a sense of scale, but the shrew is a few centimetres long. It makes mice look big.)

THEN --

Cut for blurry close-ups and blurry worm death )

The Middle East really brings out the worst in us. The Chicago Dyke March refused to let people march under the traditional symbol of Judaism because it has Zio* cooties, and now Congress (including some people who should know better) is trying to take First Amendment rights away from Israel boycotters.
*If you hate something enough, you don’t have to say the whole word: Zio, Antifa

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.

Very little of note

Started a few fights on fb. Always fun.

B ordered and/or bought all the Funko SDCC exclusive pops that she wanted so that's done too. One of the required a 90 minute drive each way but it was entertaining so I didn't mind. Not sure what she's going to do next year.

Went through my many small boxes of family photos looking for what stuff I have from one side of the family. End result? 11 boxes of photos of the paternal side, 1/2 a box from the maternal side. Thing is, until my generation both side of the family were at about the same socio-economic level. One of them was just way more into taking pictures than the other as far as I can tell. And it held true through mine and family vacations. We just didn't take pictures when we were with them in comparison to the dozens we did on the other side. It's so odd.

Saw a picture of my maternal grandmother as a young woman for the very first time this morning, sent to me digitally by a second cousin (I love the future). It's a little tough to tell from the photo but she can't be older than 30 in it which is much younger than the age 60ish photo I'd seen a long time ago. We apparently looked a lot alike and this photo does show that family resemblance rather strongly.

5 sleeps left.
