Just a super last minute quick visit to Wisconsin, with no time to see any friends. But got two hours in Madison, a day or two near Milwaukee, and otherwise in the country (Hustisford, Beaver Dam). I saw deer and red fox! But no pictures of those.
Instead, a picture of the Dr. Evermor birds on Paterson Street:
And had our normal lunch at Harmony Bar of walnut burgers, hot chips with blue cheese, and Madison beer.
Also got to experience some really terrible Milwaukee road construction (seriously, Milwaukee, you can’t close all of your freeway onramps and then have all your detour signs point to also closed onramps. Thankful that I like to get to the airport obnoxiously early or we would have missed our plane!)
But also got to watch a family wait patiently for the red light and then cross the road safely:
Also, Happy birthday, Dr. Evermor. Here’s hoping you don’t climb into Forevertron any time soon!

O neat, there’s a book out now on Dr. Evermor. Powell’s even has it too :)
I have a whole flickr set devoted to his stuff; I don’t like how most of them turned out. I’d love to go back with a few different cameras and take more pictures.
Brian at Dr Evermor’s
Tim, Jennie, Brian and I hung out last Friday and Saturday. We went to the Orpheum, and then to Cocoliquot for drinks and chocolates in many forms. Very luscious, very fun.
Saturday, we woke up late. Brian and Tim played World of Warcraft, and Jennie and I went to the Farmer’s Market. Hot cheese bread for breakfast!
After that, the four of us hopped in my car and drove to Baraboo for Dr. Evermor’s Sculpture Park. It was, not surprisingly, amazing and everything I’d hoped for. He was there, talking with friends. I had no idea that the bird band played, or that it would be half as amazing as it was. Brian and I talked about it and I think we are going to go back and get one of his smaller pieces to take with us.
