Poste 21

Here and there, along the road that winds through the vines, I see these numbers tacked to trees and vine posts. They used to be hand-written on short lengths of plastic tape, but now they're pre-printed and nailed up. I'm pretty certain that they have to do with hunting. During organized hunts for deer or fox, some of the hunters stand waiting at strategic points while others, with dogs and horns, drive the prey toward them. I think these markers identify the strategic points.

The hunting season is basically closed until fall.

We're expecting a relatively mild weekend, temperature-wise, and I'm planning to fire up the grill to cook hamburgers for lunch today. We'll have them with French fries and cole slaw. Typical American fare.

  1. Ahhhh, your recent hamburger outing no doubt whetted your appetite for more burgers and fries, eh? Did you make your own buns?

  2. I was hoping there was some sort of alien-conspiracy behind post 21.
