When I came out to my car for lunch today I noticed that pollen season has started. My windows were covered in yellow pollen. Thankfully I’m not allergic but I have friends who are. It’s nice to see it finally here, though, because that indicates that the cold weather is moving out and warmer times are ahead. The weather this week looks a bit iffy, but hopefully the weekend will be better. If it’s sunny on Saturday my son and I will probably head out to Herndon Park and try to use his new Astrocam 110 model rocket to get some pictures. I’d post them right away but the rocket takes actual real film (and 110 at that!) and you can only get rolls of 24 so we’ll need to make quite a few flights before getting them developed.
For a while now, I’ve been reading quite a few good blogs about Durham. They do a great job. They all, however, for whatever reason, tend to concentrate on downtown Durham. While I think that’s great, I also think that southern Durham tends to get left out a bit. For that reason, I decided to start my own blog. I’m not going to try to keep up with other Durham blogs because really, what’s the point there. I would, however, like to talk about things that those of who live in southern Durham deal with like the American Tobacco Trail bridge of I-40, Herndon Park, the upcoming move of the Parkwood Library and of course the ever expanding area around Southpoint mall. I won’t claim to be complete or even correct, but I would like to at least provide a southern Durham perspective on things, or if you will, a Southern Kind of Life. Wish me luck!
