i went to lake placid to my doctor today
and then on to keene valley
to take a look around
my finger's tendon is healed
there may be a wee bit more night splinting 
but it's strong and well
we stopped at the d.e.c. office in raybrook
my friend came, too
 and i scored this wonderful 
 hard outer cards on a wonderful map fold
 invasive species on one side
 and the part of new york 
i call home
on the other 
a good news day
