The above was taken at a glacial kettle (basically, a bog) outside Columbus, Ohio. I met my Columbus chum, Mary Beth Paul, at Corpus Christi this morning for 8:30 Mass and then she took me for breakfast to the Fox in the Snow and then we went and visited some of the “habitats” outside the city. In the course of our three walks, we saw two herons, one pretty long snake, several turtles and frogs, a red-winged blackbird and a whole bunch of squirrels. She, Mary Beth, recently spied a muskrat at the glacial kettle–and took the above photo.
This afternoon I’m going to visit The Book Loft.
Then I fly back to LA early in the morning.
“The Journey Home,” speaking of home, taping went fine and the episode should air in a month or so; will post here when the time comes.
