The Grass: morning, noon and evening.
It turned out to be a quiet weekend of call at Massena this just past weekend. I took advantage of the coolish, sun warmed, pre-autumn days to sit in the Veterans Memorial Park, situated on the banks of the Grass River and catch up on some reading.
The recommendation of photography how-to articles tell you that the best time to shoot photos is before 10 AM and after 4 PM. Having ample opportunity to test that theory over the weekend I took many shots of the Grass at various times from the same vantage point. I must say that I agree with the photography gurus. But I wasn't really surprised.
The books? I finished Walter Cronkite's autobiography, A Reporter's Life, (a must read if you want some insight into the workings of National politics.) The other was a book by James Patterson; non-violent nor gory: Sundays at Tiffany's. If you don't mind reading with a tear in your eye from time to time, this is a heart warming story with a happy ending. Of course it helps to believe in imaginary friends as I do.
Yesterday I started Lynne Truss' Talk to the Hand. It's as funny as her previous book; Eats, Shoots & Leaves. I'm hoping to finish it tonight while on-call again tonight in Massena.
Coming up this week-end: The Adirondak 90 miler: **YEAH**.
