All KINDS of stuff. Mostly ideas... politics, science, religion, fishing, food ....stuff that your mom told you wasnt polite to discuss.

26.99th Topic - I Do Declare

Two important facts need to be made available.

* Last night, driving home, I caught the faintest glint of green on some of the yards/fields.
* This morning, after a night of light drizzle thawed the top 1/16th inch of sod, I sensed the subtle but unmistakable aroma of fresh, fertile dirt.


We've all been through quite a winter of discomfort and/or increased costs.
I'd use the "that which doesnt kill us makes us stronger" but the over saturation of that song has ruined that expression, for me, forever. 

I love Wisconsin; Id never dream of living anywhere else.   I can look at any man, woman or even child and know that they too appreciate the coming thaw and spring and rebirth as much as I do, because I know what they may have endured.   My wife does some volunteer work and met a couple who temporarily moved down from "up-north" where not only did they run out of propane, but their propane dealer went Out Of Business.   That meant that whatever new dealer they might order through, they were last in seniority, and last on the list.  They'll go back.


This just in from e.e. cummings:


N Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame baloonman
whistles far and wee
and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
when the world is puddle-wonderful
the queer
old baloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
baloonMan whistles
