Trick question. I left out the theater, sodas, and singing. Still don’t know? Well neither do I. If you figure it out, let me know.
I’m 93 years old!
I know right? Oh yeah…that’s in dog years. Dogs need to stop exaggerating so much. Yup, turned 20 officially on Monday. While I celebrated it with my family earlier, my actual birthday involved me working knee deep in swamp mud and enjoying a NEHI Peach soda. It was pure deliciousness. In a glass bottle. The UNC-P people staying here in the house sang happy birthday to me. They’re some really cool people.
While working on Monday, we found some wild horses. We were able to get real close. It was a really cool experience. They were kinda dazed and out of it, sleep standing. I admire their dedication to the cause of standing, but I could never do it.
The rest of the days ’till the weekend were pretty much the same. Looking for and recording wildlife, tallying surveys, and being a bug buffet. But I’m not complaining. Besides the bites, I love every second of it.
The Lost Colony
On Saturday I went kayaking in the Manteo harbor/marshes. A huge osprey flew over me and I got super close to a heron in the marshes.
Later that night, I went to see “The Lost Colony.” I don’t know how they were lost because they were right there when we parked. I feel bad for the people who had to portray the Native Americans outside of the theater. How long can you stand outside hiding behind a tree pretending to be clueless? The play was excellent though. Excellent actors, and some interesting ideas for special effects including slow-mo. Slow-mo in a live play? Who knew?
