Wondering if WI-MarkA was a library personality.

WHEN and IF you find a good one let me know.
I WANT!! I WANT!! (Gosh I am excited to see this subject)
I have checked several of them and they all have fallen short
YET I WANT!! I WANT!!
After that I want a Wild Weed and Shrub and Brush book.
The ones I can think of are Golden, Audobon, several at the Library
and our B-P Tuscarora Scout Camp, and some from our local NYS
cooperative extension. So far the Golden has been my best yet unkind
friend. By the way a Golden One can be bought through your BSA.
The difficulty seems to me, to be how you start the identification
and the season of the year. Hey the Eastern Pine is easy yet all
those other little rascals like Douglas, Blue Spruce, Hemlock,
Pitch Pine, Red Pine, Scotch Pine etc reguire different tools and a
different starting point to properly identify them. I even have a
little dummies guide that looks like a S/W decision tree that my
daughter bought me and when I finished I was still a dummy and went
back to Golden and lots of walking, looking and analyzing.
IMPATIENT, SLEEPLESS and in NEW YORK not in Chief Seattle.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
