I first met Alex a hundred years ago when he became my good-natured adversary. I would post a picture of a bird, a butterfly or a plant. Alex would jokingly ask, "But what KIND is it?" I think he knew I was a person who had to answer any question. I worked hard identifying what creature or plant was going to be in my post. We bantered back and forth. I discovered he is author of at least three books and is a well-rounded happy family man with a similar sense of humor. We both like to play with words.
This post is for you, dear Alex. Bet you would've had to look them up too!
