Oh, the distractions...

 I'm trying to grade papers, relocate my office, and fix my lunch all at once.  Hard to stay glued to the chair when it's such a nice day.  So, some of the distractions are welcome.  My daughter found a dead bat, so I had to take a look.  Rigor mortis had set in, so I couldn't really spread the wings.  There was no sign of external damage, such as might be caused by a cat.  Maybe its sonar failed and it crashed.
 The next distraction, also a pleasant one, was this maple leaf that fell out of a file folder.  I picked it up off the courthouse lawn a couple of years ago while writing a rant about excessive use of leaf blowers.  I was pleased to see that is was still in good shape and retained some color.  Back to work....

  1. Watch out for rabies with the dead bat, Joe. I don't know if that is an issue in your area, around here we post signs to tell people to not touch bats they find on the ground, dead or alive, as rabies is endemic
