Spring Has, Wait For It, ............Sprung!


Believe it or not, these daffodils were coated with about three inches of snow on Monday morning.

Heavy snow. Good snowman making snow. Not too wet but real sticky, good for rolling, good for making snow balls.

If I wasn't a working man I might have constructed a snow person Monday morning. (Gee, look at me, all PC I am. Not!) But no, it was off to work I had to go. After clearing my vehicle of all that heavy white stuff.

I took the picture upon arrival at the manse Wednesday instant, after coming home from work. The flowers got my attention, I decided to photograph them for posterity. (Yes, I used the cell phone camera, didn't want to miss the moment dontcha know?)

I received an awesome photo from The WSO recently, seems she and her tribe went down to L.A. County over the weekend to see the Blue Angels. She and Big Time know the Number Four pilot, fellow yclept Mumbles. (Why they didn't make him the narrator for the show would seem to be obvious. Of course, his old squadron mates, which include son-in-law Big Time, felt that he was a natural for that role. Heh.)

So there will be a Blue Angel post coming up in the next cuppla Earth rotational periods. This was the youngest granddaughter's first trip to see the Blues. As she's only six months old, L'il Sweetie probably won't remember the show all that well when she's older, but the whole experience sparked a memory of my kids seeing the Blues for the first time in Colorado. L'il Sweetie's Mom wasn't much older than her wee daughter when she saw the Blues for that very first time.

So it got me to thinking. Blue Angels? Let's do that, soon.

And apropos of nuthin' (as Buck was wont to say), I stumbled across this catchy tune not too long ago. As I will share things of a Euterpean nature from time to time, and have not done so recently, I felt it was time. To share, that is. It's what I do...

As I had never heard of this artist before, I did a little research on him. I have to say that I don't particularly care for his politics. But the fella sure can play the guitar. And that will forgive a multitude of sins, perceived or otherwise. Anyhoo, that's my take on it. (Hell, I like Alec Baldwin in 30 Rock, he's entertaining. So sue me. No, no, not literally...)



Anyways, I liked the song.

As always, YMMV.

Oh, for the record, do I think that the Federal Government should be in the business of regulating the production and sale of alcoholic beverages?

Why no, no I don't.

But that's just me...

  1. You're right.
    It should be purely a local issue.

    1. I can see having standards, but if your product sucks, no one will buy it. Let the market drive things, not the politicians.

    2. I know that commenting on a "smart" phone will produce double comments, seems logical that a tablet might do that as well. What kind of tablet are you using Skip?

  3. The dafs in my front yard have only partially emerged. No blossoms yet. They must be waiting on a surer sign that Spring is here.

    1. Ours were a couple of weeks early this year. No doubt due to the very mild winter we had.

      I do believe you're a bit further north than me, latitudinally speaking.

  4. Yeah, politically Steve Earl is a leftist looney. This song and the others on that album are good songs, though. Brings to mind the saying, 'Shut up and Sing!(Act, Write, whatever)'.
    Earl went to prison in the mid 90s for heroin and cocaine possession, though it was only for 60 days of a 1 year sentence. Self-identifies as a Socialist. Surprise! - - Not.

    1. His politics gave me pause they did, but like you say, "Shut up and sing!"

      And he does that pretty well.

  5. Agreed with you and Skip. For my part, I think ALL substances should be local control.

    1. I won't argue with that. The other way doesn't seem to work at all.

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
