a walk across UNC
Yesterday Ren and I walked across the UNC campus, which she once attended, and took in the sights. Since the kids are still on Winter Break it was pretty quiet.
To the left is a picture of an old goat. It seems an odd statue to have around but according to Ren it's actually a male sheep (who would pick a sheep for a team mascot???), not a goat. That's the football stadium that you can see behind the
The picture below is from the Arboretium. It's a Chinese Fir and was quite striking. I'm afraid the picture just doesn't do the tree justice. Sorry, tree--I tried.
These next two pictures are of Ren and I at The Old Well, which is a landmark at UNC. I'm the one with the camera bag on my back. :-)
This last picture is here due to Carmi. He likes to post pictures of grungy industrial looking pictures so here's an example of that sort from UNC. It's the air treatment plant behind the hospital at UNC. The Belltower, another famous landmark, is just 100 yards to the side of this and a lot prettier but you only get to see the nasty pipes of the industrial plant. Ha!
This is the last day of the year 2006 and the only plans I have are to cook a Boston Butt in my crockpot--it's about 3 lbs so it'll take a good 6 hours on high--along with a few side dishes and to watch the Carolina game on Fox at 3pm. They're going up against Dayton and should win easily. The pork should be finished cooking right when the game ends and then it'll be time to eat!
Happy New Year everyone!
