So this is the new ride that Ashley got by way of apology from Candy Cain, a 1969 Cadillac hearse.  (Candy just won the apology olympics.) Awesome.

I love this thing because it is not just the perfect car for Ashley as an individual, but the Platonic ideal of a superhero team vehicle for the city of New Orleans.

Here at Fieldhaven, we're on one of the main migrating paths in central Illinois for monarch butterflies.  When I was little, they would come in their thousands, covering the trees.  Now they are few.  Most years they don't even flock anymore, so it's exciting to see even a few dozen of them chaining up like this.  There are more fluttering around overhead today.  I managed to catch these resting in the shade, so it's not a great picture, but you can see the density of butterflies.

 I saw this photo and had to write a poem about it.  "Proton Aurora" is 16 lines, $10 if anyone wants it.
