I forgot to mention earlier the stamp on the bottom of the bakery bag I received this morning at Dosie Dough from Meg. The stamp is in this post title: SEP 29 10
EL 48 C
that is all the information that is given, and that is a lot.
After I returned home this morning I telephoned the real estate agent from the front porch. There was neither answer nor provision for leaving a message. The young white pines in front of the house have sprouted growth spurts on their branches and these make a curious spring sprung pattern of upward streaks against the blue sky. I came inside as my feet were baking under black socks in the sunshine. I made a pair of artist trading cards. When this was completed, I started off on my right foot and then the left one and repeated the process until I had delivered one at one office building and and attempted the second delivery at another office building nearby, but was unable to obtain signature as the individual is working in a distant office, in another location today. At this interval the real estate agent phoned me. The receptionist said the person I sought would be back tomorrow and I said I could return then.
As I walked back from the corporate center, I spied a huge heron flying above the suburban landscape. It looked like a man in a business suit for a moment. It made a turn and descended a few feet over the coporate ponds, the one with the plastic heron effigy designed to ward off other birds. It continued to fly and landed right on top of the second tall white pine among a stand of ten tall white pines trees east of 2010 Commerce Drive. It stood on top of the tree and its snaky neck looked just like a sprig of new tree growth, slender and barbed with needle bunches or in the heron’s case, wispy neck feathers to blow in the breeze. The trees are more than three stories tall, next to the two story building. I examined a needle bundle to make sure I have correctly identified the tree and I am not positive I have made correct identification. I like the trees because they are tall and stand out like the evergreens you might happen to see in the Carolinas.
