Really far away. These are the mailboxes to use when sending a letter a very, very great distance. When I was in Seattle last winter I saw a lot of small graffiti with the mathematical symbol for pi. Maybe New York's answer is infinity.
Oh, and if you have the urge to tell me these are relay boxes, not boxes in which someone can drop a letter, I thank you in advance for the clarification.
As you can see, I'm almost out of maple syrup. It is time to replenish my supply. Since I'm very picky about my maple syrup, and must personally inspect the trees in which the sap ran, I don't expect to be back for a couple of weeks. In the meantime a couple of posts will magically appear. Do not be alarmed.
I've been walking over to the pond on our campus every day lately trying to get a picture of the giant old snapping turtle that lives there. The geese, and their residue, are often there. I've seen two small turtles, one of which turned and "ran" when it saw me yesterday. The muskrat above was so busily eating shoots and leaves and whatever else muskrats eat that I could get within a couple of feet for a close up picture. Alas, no giant old snapping turtle.
Odds are you've seen the waterfall at 113th St. if you've been to Morningside Park. It is equally likely that you've not seen this tiny (8") waterfall. It is fed by water flowing out of a PVC pipe into a proportionally tiny pond that functions as a birdbath. Whether the pond and the falls are intentional I do not know.
There are several families of Canadian geese on our campus. The largest has seven goslings. The other familes have only two or three goslings. The parents were very protective of the young. They hissed at me and charged at me, but I managed to snap a couple of pictures.
