My mind is caught in 1913 in the Keweenaw Peninsula these days, but tonight I watched a NOVA program (I think) on PBS about a theory of how frequent climate changed spurred evolutionary change in hominids, leading eventually to us. Very interesting, but it begs another question: If homo sapiens has been evolving more or less continuously, what are WE evolving into next? No answers, just the question,and it’s certainly an interesting premise for a story.
Mike” Borko The Force” Borkovich up north, or thereabouts with my pal Jane, making sure she is adhering to all laws of the land. Mike has a terrific way with people, lessen you cross him, then well…guess. Over.
54 days on da road, 52 of them in the Yoop. Bears and wolves, snakes, northern lights and aurora borealis, visiting friends, making new friends, a triple-rainbow, smallmouth, brook trout, Lake Superior storms, agates, high wind, heavy rain, lots of good work done — cartoons, poems, some shooting with a 30/40 Krag (180 grain) carbine used by Teddy Roosevelt’s Roughriders. Pretty strange and thrilling to look down the sights of a rifle made in 1896 and still being used for UP deer hunting up till two years ago. The bolt actions is as smooth as it came off the production line yesterday. That’s quality we don’t often see any more, folks. Also signing- readings in Newberry and Boyne City, edited a book manuscript, and kept a journal. Details to follow after photos get unloaded. Hope everyone’s summer is going as well as here. I’m looking forward to being in the field with officers this coming fall. Leaves are changing color already and the Eastern UP was at one point, according to the Soo Evening News, “experiencingthe wettest summer on record.”
