I took Buddy to the high school football/soccer complex the other day to get some exercise and as we were walking to one of the entry gates I happened to look down, noticed a leaf and wondered how it had stayed so pretty during the cold winter. I also wished I had brought the camera with me. When we got home afterwards, I grabbed the camera and headed back to the football field, found the leaf and bent down to take a picture, getting a good look for the first time and noticed the edges. Yes, it’s a fake. A silk leaf. What the hell was a silk leaf doing on a football field? Sucker!! Now that was embarrassing.
