I am a woman falconer, enjoying the Great Outdoors with a hawk on my fist.

On Saturday I took a road trip and met up with my girlfriend who lives in the Necedah, Wisconsin area (where I used to live) and took her to Madison for the Farmer's Market, and a little gratuitous economic stimulation (shopping). On my list of things to do while in that college town was to hunt down a place that serves "Bubble Tea" and give it a try. I heard about this on an NPR show, This American Life. I asked myself . . . "Self . . . What the heck is Bubble Tea?" So, the Internet filled me in.
I chose a black tea with mango. It was a slushy, cold concoction, sweet, though I'm unsure of where the sweetness came from, as I didn't have to add anything to it. Floating at the bottom are big, black, squishy tapioca balls. That's the intriguing part of this drink. It was tasty! It was fun! I'll have to try it again sometime, a different flavor, and maybe next time have some pot stickers.
Falconry! Or more appropriately for me, Hawking! It is a passion, and a way of life. I happily pursue this sport, with the loving assistance of my husband. Come along with me for our adventures with the birds. Primarily we actively pursue it in the colder months . . . the rest of the time I try to make this blog as interesting as possible. Come let me share my stories, and feel free to contact me. I always enjoy talking about my obsession with this sport.
