A trip not taken #18

Down in the "south" here in Philadelphia, it is WAY too warm for birch trees to flourish.....you might see an occasional one that someone plants and manages to keep going....but, like Alaska, the The County so much resembles in many ways, we do see birch trees up there....maybe not as much as in New Hampshire...but a fair amount. They are winter loving trees...So this one shows a paper birch tree up there...and even sneaks in some Saturday shadows.

I call photos like these "micro landscapes".

And, a grateful thanks to Isabel (Chinga) for her UA. Thank yo Isabel.

There is a lot of excitement here with Kamila Harris...the first Black Woman, and the first woman of Asian decent to be on the President/VP ticket. With the heavy projected use of mail in ballots, with Covid rampant here, and The Tyrant trying to hobble the Post Office (successfully) to very openly hamper mail in ballots, so that we may not know the results of the election for days, if the physical voting is close, things could get REALLY ugly...as he dog whistles his fanatics. It could even get violent. On other hand, if there is a landslide with physical voting....even he would have a hard time arguing fraud.

A nice set Peter.
Our "leader" doesn't have a hard time arguing anything, regardless how unrealistic, Lying comes naturally to him.
