JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 05.14.22
My little part of New Jersey exploded into lush greenness this week.
Not sure what it was but all the trees just look amazing now. My walks are between columns of trees that sprung back to life, alongside creeping vines and dotted with yellow buttercups.
Feels like it took Spring a little longer to arrive this year, but it’s certainly here now.
Even the critters are coming to life.
This week I saw foxes, a family of deer lying within the the woods (I’ve never seen deer laying down, saw it twice this week) and a fair number of different birds. Starting to think I should take up birding, like Dan Milnor.
This week also had baseball…lotsa baseball
Still trying to see what I can see whenever I can.
Let’s get after it this week!

What I Listened To: Podcast: The World’s Greatest Con: How To Fool Hitler
[Sidenote: Operation Mincemeat and The World’s Greatest Con both deal with deceiving Hitler in the hopes of winning World War II. The deception worked. It’s a cool story. That said…the movie is dull and dour. The podcast is cool and exciting. Listend, don’t watch.]
