I’m an alchemist

Posted in Books, Odds on July 31, 2012 by The Prince of Pithy

I just wrapped up two back-to-back trips.  The first was a two week bus trip out west, and the second was a weekend visit with some friends.  I’m still unpacking, but I noticed something amazing.  When I packed for the first trip, I packed clothes, odds and ends like my camera, and some snacks – chips and cookies – for the long bus rides.  As I’m unpacking, I’m finding dirty clothes (not that surprising), all my odds and ends meaning I didn’t lose any, and … books.  Apparently, I’ve stumbled upon some obscure process that turns snacks into books.  If the trip wasn’t so exhausting, I might repeat the experiment.


Pity the poor buffalo

I’m on a bus trip out west.  Several days ago (they’ve started to blur together) we stopped at The Great Platte River Road Archway.

It’s an interesting place and well worth a visit.  But there was one thing that troubled me.  On the grounds were some buffalo that were just skin and bones.
