Into the woods, it's time and so I must begin my journey

I didn't review any cartoons or old-time-radio shows or anything like that on my humor blog this week. How did I fill that content hole instead? Thusly:

And now? Into the domesticated woods!

Bosque Tlalpan squirrel with some human-provided dice in its mouth!

A look at some of the flower arrangements up front, and the start of one of the heavily used walking trails.

Statue commemorating Walter Lenz H, with a plaque the gist of which I understood even without my iPod's translation dictionary.

Pedestal commemorating Don Carlos Ponce Vargas that ... I don't know. I assume it's being renovated or restored after perhaps some mishap?

Oh, yeah, the snack I'd gotten, a pleasant little thing somewhere in the KitKat family of snacks.

Now let's get into the woods. The start of the trail I walked.

And a moment of public drinking water that wasn't quite open to the public just then.

More trees with wonderful dots of purple along the path.

A turning point promises that the trail is 350 meters, although to what point I was never clear.

The remains of a disassembled shelter along the trail.

A rocky structure that I think was the foundation for the disassembled shelter.

A look back downhill from near that disassembled shelter.


Trivia: Bill Irwin, hired to pitch for Cincinnati in 1886, had only one eye. Source: The Beer and Whisky League: The Illustrated History of the American Association --- Baseball's Renegade Major League, David Nemec.

Currently Reading: Greater Gotham: A History of New York City from 1898 to 1919, Mike Wallace. So, this book, covering twenty years of New York City history, came out twenty years after Wallace and Edwin Burrows's Gotham: A History of New York City, which covered everything up through 1898, which implies Wallace is only barely keeping up with things the past two decades. Which, to be fair, is true of many of us.

PS: Reading the Comics, August 10, 2019: In Security Edition as I talk about more than just one comic strip, but it must be admitted, not a lot more than just the one.
