April in Wisconsin

OK, then.  There are some of our readers who are displaying photos of their flowerbeds.  Beautiful Clymenestra, Amarylis, and Roses.   To these readers I warn that the following photos may be shocking, so grab a Mint Julep (or a Lone Star) before looking any further.

I was so inspired to hear from my friends that the earth was once again in bloom.  I couldn't wait to get up this morning, and fill my lungs with the fresh dew-moistened blossom-scented air of Spring At Last!  I threw open the front door this morning to get the paper, stepped out into the silvery dawn, and saw: 

I’m as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I’m as jumpy as puppet on a string
I’d say that I had spring fever
But I know it isn’t spring 
--- Rodgers and Hammerstein

Little Darlin - It's Been a Long Cold Lonely Winter -- the Beatles

You guys live in Wisconsin. Besides cheese, you get snow. Do I need to tell you EVERYTHING?!?!

PS: Jealous you have a Quickie Mart.

One of my most hated business meeting bingo words is peridm, as in "let's break the peridm". GAH!
