Mostly Cabbages

I live vicariously through myself.

From: Les Pigeons par Madame Knip from 1838 in our Cullman Library, which you can see in its entirety at the Biodiversity Heritage Library, or see a few more on Flickr, here, here, and here.
Who knew pigeons could be so classy? Madame Knip did, for sure, as she put her name on this work. But then again—Madame Knip was a plagiarist of the worst kind. At least that’s the allegation in vol. 5, no. 4 of The Bulletin of the USGS, which reads,

“This work [Les Pigeons par Madame Knip] is one of the curiosities of literature…
Madame Knip accomplished a piece of truly feminine finesse, by which she stole [the text] from Temminck. To do this, she changed the cover-title of the 9th and following livraisons, and made sundry other alterations to suit her purpose…
…This was certainly a bold trick, regardless of consequences. But no such piracy as seems to have suited the lady’s taste could hope to pass without detection; and Temminck immediately published an indignant reclamation, exposing and protesting against the fraud.”

On Sunday I joined Ali, his boss Kerim and Kerim’s daughter Betül for an outing to their friend’s garden house out in Brandenburg. Ali and Kerim had been there the night before, and prepared a bbq lunch for us in advance. We enjoyed a walk around a nearby lake after lunch, and I got some snaps of some local kids jumping into the water.http://zoespawton.tumblr.com/post/94525113450/lake-jumper-brandenburg
Ali was in high spirits, singing and dancing for us. He also revealed he was in a circus just off the Kurfürstendamm in the west of Berlin in the mid 1970s. Just when I thought I knew all there was to know about him…!
