4 Months Down, 8 To Go...

Boy, it's been a long night. It feels like it coulda been Christmas Eve. Twas about 2 a.m. and all through the town, there weren't too many people stirring, not even a clown.

No clue how many games of pool were played... nor how many pitchers of Alaskan IPA were downed. Glad I was that I was not driving, for an accident I might've gotten into, a good situation that would not have made.

When we walked out the doors and into the night, with the snow that was falling, this close to May, well, it was quite a sight!

Two days ago I thought listening to this would be incredibly out of place. By now there should be warm weather and flowers everywhere with trees all in green and Springtime in the air... that's sure not the case.

Here I am this morning, at the break of dawn. The sun is beginning to give a light blue glow to the sky, I watch out my window and I can't see my lawn!

It should be there, be there, be there it should. The snow's covered it up, it's cold, cold, cold and my stove needs more wood!

My coffee is made, but the stockings are not hung by the chimney with care. It's freakin' April, still got 8 months before St. Nicholas will be there!!

So go outside today, enjoy your warm weather. Ain't happenin' here, there'll be no game of ball that the kids in the schoolyard like to call tether.

This sillyness really has gotta come to an end. Whaddya want from me, I've been awake all night, my mind, it's starting to bend!

I'm purty sure today the white stuff will melt. I'll sleep away while the Mets lose again, booo's the team will hear, victory's something no one will have felt.

Some music it's now time for, time to Press Play. This weirdness is all done, how about some Christmas tunes for the start of the day?

We have been having a gorgeous spring, the magnolia trees are having a good year, the red buds are in full bloom, and the dogwoods are just starting. Also, there are tulips everywhere and peonies are starting to bud. I have been taking pictures and I'll take more and post them over at my place in the next few days. Meanwhile, I'll be thinking of you in Alaska and appreciating it even more. Take care! I changed my avatar, it is a picture of my tree!

I watched the movie Into The Wild and thought of you. Although you're not quite that extreme...

;-)

Reading this post particularly clicked.

Shame the files are not working anymore.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
