Crazy weather, saw the blue birds on their house considering setting up home, and then there is the early blooms on the Japanese Quince? Not even close to Spring yet but it sure has felt like it!
An old Irish prayer:
May those who love us, love us.
And those who don't,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles so we'll know
Them by their limping.
The Nazis preached that their government was dedicated to protecting their client countries. Protection from what? Protection from Freedom. The National Socialists worked this scam. Our gangland's protection racket work/worked it. The Soviets worked it. Red China works it. Naturally, our very own Democrats work it. According to every dictator, decent people have no right to determine the course of their lives nor the unencumbered use of the fruits of their labors.
I'm watching a British movie about the war. I got inspired.

Today's world is too caught up with safety. We used common sense, even though to the inexperienced that might look foolish. Ever wonder why construction costs have skyrocketed over the years? OSHA and other safety organizations. Everyone thinks that they need a entity to protect them from themselves. One half hour of repair work on the highway will cost $10,000. Why? Five dump trucks with drivers as safety vehicles idling along the road five miles before the worksite, a half mile of cones or barrels needing to be placed manually so one guy can do the work. It pezzez me off. Infrastructure is crumbling....I wonder why?
Missouri hardscrabble. Know it well, but not quite like this. The banjos, they are playing...
