"In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours." - Mark Twain

Interesting weather since I was last here; warm days in the high sixties, and several inches of snow, then more spring weather and an inch of snow last night, which has now melted.

My blog turned six years old yesterday. I may not post often, but I've been trying to hang in there.

*********************************************************

I'm getting tired of hearing about Peyton Manning; I didn't know who he is until a couple of weeks ago, don't know what he looks like, and really don't care; could we move on to something that actually matters now?

Hoping to post again soon; have been a bit out of sorts lately.

James:it has been strange around here; it is too warm for this time of year, but I know it will be getting cold again.

Terri: lots of spring bulbs blooming now; I'm looking forward to tulips in a few weeks.

BObG:
Great songs...excellent commentary...

Wow...I never KNEW that Mark Twain spent time in INDIANA when he remarked about the WEATHER (who knew?)
Because that is EXACTLY how it behaves.

Stay safe out there.

Happy Blogday as well and I hope you get to feeling better. I understand the getting older part, hit 50, still get carded but tell my knees that.

Zeke had his 30th and I reminded him if he says anything about being old I have an 1861 Colt I'm not afraid to use. :-)

Thanks for the updates.
