Backyard Safari

Coffee shop conversation, this morning in Bergen-Lafayette, JC:

Cashier: "Trust me, you don't want a dog."

Barista: "Get a fish, man."

Owner: "I got that, I got four fish. Guess who has to clean the tank?"

I don't have any pets myself. I like pets a lot, but they hamper one's ability to move freely across the world.

But my mom gave me one of her game cams, and I rigged it up in my backyard in Jersey City. Within hours, I had photos of cats and squirrels and raccoons.

I put in fresh batteries and a 64 GB memory card. Can't wait to see what I have next time I go home.

I know of a couple of people who have trailcams and use them- and I find myself wondering what the animals think of them.

Just read your entry on Benin, as I am headed there from Togo in a few hours. Great stuff, thanks for posting it! :-)

Thanks--I just went back and read it myself. Fun times. I miss it what with office life and all. Hope you have a great trip!
