|CROCUS FLOWERS AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF OUR HOUSE|
A beautifully gorgeous Spring day with a big blue sky and lots of sunshine. A routine run up to Goderich and back for Pheebs and I to pick up a few things.
|THESE ARE THE FIRST SHEEP I HAVE SEEN OUTSIDE THIS YEAR AND AS I SLOWED DOWN THEY ALL SCAMPERED FOR THE BARN|

Home again I busied myself raking up pine needles and leaves and loading them into the utility trailer. I spent a few hours at this and at one point had to come in and tip back in my recliner to give my oh-so-sore legs a break. It's the price I am paying for being so inactive all winter. Kelly came out and cleaned up our front flower beds by the road but it really knocked the stuffings out of her and she had to come in and lay down for a few hours. She had said she just wanted to get outside in the warm Spring sunshine and do something. I could certainly understand that after she spent a whole week in a hospital bed a short time ago.
|CROCUS FLOWERS IN OUR BACK YARD|
The first thing I hear now in the morning upon opening the patio door beside my living room recliner is the spring songbirds twittering and chortling in a nearby cedar tree beside our back deck. And at night when I open the sunroom door it is the Peeper frogs I hear. Oh boy, it sure sounds like Spring outside these days:))
GROANER'S CORNER:((After hearing that one of the patients in a mental hospital had saved another from a suicide attempt by pulling him out of a bathtub, the director reviewed the rescuer’s file and called him into his office. “Mr. James, your records and your heroic behavior indicate that you’re ready to go home. I’m only sorry that the man you saved later killed himself with a rope around the neck.” “Oh, he didn’t kill himself,” Mr. James replied. “I hung him up to dry.”
