Light Blogging

I know, I haven't been posting much the last couple of weeks. It's the height of field season. That's going really well. We now have females of the highly endangered swamp metalmark butterfly in the lab laying eggs. So we're having success, but it's keeping me very busy. Plus we're scrambling to prepare a big grant application that's due next week, though it's nowhere near as big as the one Rodger slaved over last spring. A week from tomorrow I leave for Tucson where I will meet up with UrSpo and Someone, and will get to meet Homer.

Size doesn't matter...when it comes to grant deadlines there is always a lot of work. I feel for ya' bud.

Good luck and have a great trip. I'm jealous you get to meet Homey...give him a hug for me.

Since I like butterflies and you are helping them along, you are excused from blogging. :)

I agree with Lemuel - for your good work you get a free pass! If you happen to see Tony this weekend, tell him I said HI!

Rodger- Thanks. I know you recently did something similar, though much more extensive.

Lem and Spider - Thanks. To make up for this, I've just posted a bit about some of what's been going on.

Spider - Also, thanks for coming by and commenting. It's great to see you back in the saddle again. Hope you are feeling better.
