It is 2145 on Dec 31 and Liam and I are sitting in a casita 500ft from Bentsen chomping at the bit. Music is blasting through the RV park as the winter Texans' drink wine coolers and party like gypsies.
Liam is starting his "Big Year" journal and bouncing around asking a million questions. It's great to see him so excited!
We are going to take a walk at midnight and see if we hear anything because we can't stand to wait 'til dawn. This is a pic of the brand new sixth edition "National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America" waiting to go into battle. I want to lick it. Too heavy though so I'm gonna likely rip out a bunch of pages. It's gonna be used as the main workhorse "field" guide not a car or coffee table guide so it must be done.
