March Came In Like A Lion...

 

...well, not THAT lion...more like this one:


Cold and windy, with a few snow showers...but then it moderated nicely...guess we'll have to wait and see how it leaves.

The good news is it will leave, and hopefully it will be quick about it.

I've said before it's one of the two ugliest months of the year...patches of dirty snow, biting winds, barren trees.

Unpleasant...but it does have 4 things going for it:

1. It's not February...


...the armpit of winter up here in Michigan.

2. The time change, when we spring forward...


...and enjoy daylight later into the evening.

3. St. Patrick's Day...

you expected to see a leprechaun, didn't you?

...a time to avoid green beer but enjoy Tullamore DEW (Jameson's will do in a pinch).

4. Blessed Spring...

life is better down that old dirt road...

...the harbinger, if not the actual deliverer, of good weather and delightful outdoor living again.

So Welcome, March...it's nice to see you!

Just don't let the door hit you in the backside on your way out.


Our latest binge...


...Foyle's War, a British drama set in 1940's England during WWII.

It follows Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen, center) as he deals with local crimes, primarily murder.

Foyle doesn't drive and thus has a chauffeur, Samantha Stewart (Honeysuckle Weeks).

His able assistant is Sergeant Paul Milner (Anthony Howell).

As with many British dramas, it's very well done, period correct and thought provoking.

While we anxiously await the arrival of outdoor weather, Foyle's War is providing pleasant evenings of quality entertainment.

Several cuts above the usual network drivel, this is well worth a look.


This...


...is my back yard...and as the snow continues to melt and temps head into the 50's over the next few days, guess what I'm going to do?


If you said "swing your hickories!" please award yourself...


...to be used however you like.

Can't wait...




As you race for the exit, please remember to stay 6 of these...



...apart from each other, and don't forget to wear your mask...


...at all times to please our ignorant fascist overlords.

While you're trying to sort that out, here are a few parting shots...

no idea what's happening here

guess who woke up from a long winter's nap?

Was forcefully reminded recently that Life has its unexpected ups and downs, and often they are tightly intertwined...and so I leave you with this thought:



later, mcm fans...
