Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love! ~Sitting Bull


The little spring peckerwood is back! He visited a couple of times last month but this morning he was in full and glorious happiness, drumming on the side of our house. Daffodils are in full bloom and the temperature is supposed to be 72F (22C) today. Time to think about serious porch occupying. Of course it is early spring and they are calling for snow flurries tomorrow night and temperatures well below freezing for a day or two. Such be early spring. Hope the temps moderate before the gigantic Ides of March celebration which never happens.

I hope Sandy and her family were able to withstand the sizable earthquake which occurred just off the California shore from where they live.

My Lady Vols won the conference championship in three straight come from behind victories. I hope they can get a number one seeding in the Big Dance; that way they won’t have to face too many teams better than they before the Final Four. They really aren’t as good as they are ranked to be. The men’s team is also playing well but there is doubt as to whether they can get into the NCAA tournament.

Imagine: This modern tech-heavy world has lost without a trace an entire jet airliner!

  1. Hi Ken,
    we survived the Earth quake, it swayed sideways for a few Seconds but no damage that we can see anyway. Our relatives in Eureka south of us, were also Lucky they were closer, our Son and daughter in law in Oregon felt it also. 6.9 is pretty strong but the water buffered it this time and no tsunami generated. We had a few gully washers last week and frost warning this week, poor plants don’t know what season it is. Glad you are thawing out back there, boy what a winter this has been. sunny day today. I lost a friend last week of 64 years, he was my first boy friend, we have been friends since 1950. We both married the wrong people the first time but chose well the send time but things were such that we were not single at the right time for us to get together. Ships passing in the night. will miss knowing he was there.
    Take care, keep warm and enjoy what Spring is springing!. .

    • I’m glad y’all survived the quake. I suppose you are sort of used to them.
      Yesterday was spring but tonight winter again comes growling.
      One of the most difficult things about growing older is the loss of family and friends. Thank you for your story about your friend; it makes you seem more of a person to me instead of an unknown contact. 🙂

      • Going to have some sun the rest of the week but frost at night it looks like, Our son Clark came and mowed the lawns a while ago, grass got a little higher then it has been.. , ground still kind of soggy, It is nice not to have to mow the lawn, did it for years. not that I can’t still do it but Clark has been doing it for us for about 3 years now. I heard there are more cold storms coming to you eastern folks, boy will you be glad when that stops ! Keep warm and dry .

      • Good to have someone you can depend on to mow and do tedious chores. We had a few snow flurries last night and it is cold today but it can’t last forever … I hope.
        Thanks, Sandy.

  2. How this modern tech-heavy world could loose this jet airliner.?! I don’t understand it!!!
    Here in Poland we enjoy spring too. 15C. Beautiful sunny weather. I wear my light coat.
    Thank you for Neil Young who is like a wine (more older, more delicious), and thank you for my picture which is a nice background on your blog, my friend. 🙂
    Like what Sandy wrote about her first love.

    • Google knows where everyone is; they should just ask them where the plane was last known to be.
      Yep, Mr. Young is as good as ever even if a bit more mellow.
      Thanks, Jola. 🙂

  3. The plane missing is very odd. Something is not right in this story.

    Been very nice here after the ice storm.

    Amazing there was no tsunami. Figured Crescent City would have one.

    • Must have been a side-slipping quake instead of a vertical one.
      Thanks, Mark.
