Here you see the building that’s just across the parking lots where the Liberal Arts college (including the History department) is located at Baa Ram U. How many of you can boast a stock judging pavillion in your immediate environs? It’s just another charming detail of life on this High Plains Desert–like two feet of snow before Halloween, and then temperatures in November in the 70s. Go figure! (If only there were a rodeo ring there, too–now that would be fun. They do occasionally park some bulls at the Stock Judging Pavillion, usually towards the end of the spring semester.)
Take a look at the boys over here on the right: as Bill says to Jake in The Sun Also Rises: “Must be swell being a steer.” Consider that your eye candy (of a rusticated sort) for the day. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos–I shot these with my trusty 3-year old mobile phone on the fly as I rushed to my veal-fattening pen office Monday morning. (Well, it’s not really a veal-fattening pen: I have four walls, a proper door, a big window, a new heating and cooling system and unfortunately, extremely ugly carpeting.)
If you haven’t seen it already, go read Knitting Clio’s post on the state of heterosexuality and the pill in the early 1960s, which she wrote in response to my post about what a grim, joyless undertaking is heterosex on Mad Men. This is just an open thread, for anyone who wants to “share.” Consider it a grown-up version of “show and tell,” only with lots more telling and lots less showing, considering the technology.
