I’m gonna show my age and admit that when I hear the word “structure”, I can’t help remembering Madeline Kahn in Paper Moon telling Tatum O’Neill that she’s got good ‘bone struck-cha’.
How my sisters and I giggled over that line!
I do love the resilience of ancient structures, man-made…
I wonder what structures will crumble in my lifetime, and which will remain for my children’s children. What kind of masonry am I working on now? I work for a Land Trust. I like to think I’m working on building a network of green space that will resist development…forever.
Madeline Kahn was amazing. I loved her in so many movies…I think my favorite character was Eunice in “What’s Up Doc.”
Wasn’t she, though?! “Who is that dangerously unbalanced woman?” Thanks for your visit!
Great post Scilla, with some wonderful ‘structures’, especially the last one, which I hope will remain forever free of manmade structures! 🙂
Thanks, Andy! I checked up on you and found it a coincidence that you’re in Scotland…my boss at the Conservancy is there right now dropping her daughter off at the University of St. Andrews. I am hoping that we will be able to keep our 2400+ acres naturally structured in perpetuity. Thanks for your moral support!
You’re welcome scilla ☺You’re boss’s daughter should love it up at St Andrews, not only is it a great university, the town itself is really nice. I’ll definitely keep my fingers crossed, 2400+ acres is a decent sized piece of land, it would be awful if ever they built on it!!!
It’s not all one piece, more like 60 smaller pieces, some contiguous. Still, it’s beautiful habitat.
That’s certainly of benefit to the wildlife, it no doubt means there is some variation in habitat 🙂
That’s a great word Scilla, ‘contiguous’, I must confess to having had to go and look it up, but from your description, it describes Cedar Lakes perfectly 🙂
Great structures indeed! Good selection!
Thanks! I’m glad you came to visit!
