Yesterday was a research day for me. I'm reading a paper about Hedge Funds and Systemic Risk. I'll post a follow-up based on my incomplete, nascent understanding of the material. It was such a pretty day, that I read on the deck. I wanted to share a few pictures with you.
First, my redbud:
Second, a dogwood in bloom behind my deck. This view is looking back into the woods. My husband's and my first cat, Houston, is buried under this tree.
Here's another picture with a view just to the right of the above picture. The path leads back to the creek behind my home. Lots of wildlife back there--deer, turkey and my favorite....snakes! I saw my first snake yesterday--a garter snake. He was eager to get out of my way. Unfortunately in addition to the harmless garter snakes, puff adders and black snakes we also have copperheads. I know three people who have been bit by them. Unfortunately, we have the perfect habitat. Though rarely deadly, they render a powerful poison that causes much tissue damage.
A picture of my research assistants:
This is Macy (l) and Greta (r). Greta will be 10 this year. Macy will celebrate her first birthday.
Finally, independent counsel:
This is Herm.
