Free, free, set them free

Free, free, set them free..
I set my lichens free today. Some will live and some will die and some are already dead.  If left in a shoebox they would all die.  I look forward to watching them spring back to life the next time it rains.

You come all the way here and do not let me know...

I was going to ride up the Dose yesterday, but instead went riding the power line.

Do you still have my email, use it.
