Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur We took the time to go to the greenhouse, unfortunately it was a disappointment. Still like the name.

A first

I work with the public as a loan officer at a Credit Union and I often field complaint calls from members.

I knew our web site had been down for two days and had been fielding calls from some really irrate members.

This afternoon a member called and was delighted when I said the site was down.

She thought it was her computer that had the problem which upset her. She said"Oh thank you, thank you, you've made my day."

Fair is fair , she made my day.

Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur Near the Interstate at Jamestown North Dakota there is the biggest statue of a bison in the world, but that's for another day.

There is a small herd of bison and they have 3 white bison. I'm not sure if they are ture albinos,
I wasn't going to get close enough to see thier eyes.

They were a good distance off in, the fog, so the quality of the photo is low.

The first white bison just happened, now they breed for the trait.

I think I found Big Foot

Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur While roaming North Dakota in seach of rare birds I came upon a disquieting shoe.

I wear a 10and a half but my foot was absolutely dainty in comparison.

Big Foot is alive and well in North Dakota

Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur I've been away on vacation to North Dakota. Yah, went to see some birds and potholes.
Had a bunch of lifers( seen for the first time) both birds and humans.

Thought I'd pop up and see if any one was around these days.

More later.
