Hi all,

I wonder who the guy from Texas was.  It might have been someone I know.

Shared, with permission, from Pat Ready, Stoughton, Wisconsin:

"Last week I was telling my co-worker about going down and photographing 
the Mango hummer in Beloit. I mention how far away some folks had come 
to see it. When I was there a woman from AZ (visiting relatives in 
Chicago) was there and a woman from GA (visiting her sister in Milw) 
and  a man from TX (here for an Audubon meeting) and I mention this to 
my co-worker. She said "Man Birders are weird." I briefly explained 
listing and Life Birds but she's convinced Birders are a weird bunch.
So here's the kicker. As we were leaving work that day she mentioned 
she had to get home and make dinner early because her husband had to do 
a "Hare Run" that night. Naturally I asked what that was. She explained 
he belongs to a running group called HASH. (Ahhh it's a drinking group 
with a running problem) On a full moon night they do the "Hare Run". 
Her hubby gets a 15 min. head start running with a 5 lb bag of flour 
through the streets of Madison. He has to drop the flour as he runs 
creating a trail so the rest of the group can follow him. Usually to 
some bar an hour away. I just looked at her and said "And you think 
Birders are weird?! Touche!"
