Well, I see spring is on the way. There's a bit of green poking through even up here in the Northeast. I guess our long, frigid nightmare is over. Of course, around here the disappearing snow always reveals lots of jobs to do. Spring can be a big guilt trip for me. Lack of snow can leave an ugly world for a week or so. As Kramer said to Jerry after Cosmo had been smoking a pipe for a week straight and his teeth turned brown and his skin wrinkly, "Look away, I'm hidieos." The snow is off the deck. The grill is near firing up. However, a blanket of white still covers the garden. But... Birdhouses are being hung. Fertilizer being spread. The lawn tractor is getting a tune-up. Things are looking up. Finally.
