    Spring is here!

    Had a fine outdoor meal* with the Boss down in West Palm with the gentle breezes blowing, stopped in a olive oil boutique store and bought three excellent blends, and watched the opening season minor league baseball game in Jupiter on Star Wars night. Kids running all over with light sabers and blasters--and no one got sent home for carrying weapons! Great night out with the She OldVet.

    *Best part of it was the group of Yankees at the restaurant celebrating their last night out and heading home tomorrow. Their loud boasting and trying to talk over the others to be the most important was the only downer of the evening. But they are gone now.

    Wonderful that you got to have such a nice evening with minimal distractions. Hope the year keeps getting better for you and the boss lady.

    I thought West Palm had only one season. I guess when the temp goes from 75 to 85 you probably could call it Spring there.

    We do have 4 seasons. Fall and spring here last about a week each, winter about six.

    We had a couple days mid 70's and then back to 42. MAN, does 42 feel COLD after those really warm days! But today was better and we did a wee bit of garden work, so YES, spring hath come. Just hope we don't get one of those "freak April ice storms".

    Looked on line about what to do with the whole bunch to totally dead looking no leaf Nandina bushes that got totally whomped by this historically cold winter. It said "wait". I can do that.

    Bah humbug.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    Had to scrape the windshield this morning.
    The good part is Sunday is the only day I get up early enough to have to worry about it.
