My boots have resurfaced.  They have been out of sight for over a year and now, this very day, they re-appeared.  They were under a drop-leaf maple table stuck beneath a black candelabra in my front porch.  I can not believe the mice or the cats put them there.  How they got there is still a mystery.

They’re called “spring sports-” so why was the first track meet canceled because of sleet?

Welcome to Maine.

Anyway, regular seasons for sport springs have begun.  Everyone in tennis, track and field, baseball, and softball are very excited to compete after several weeks of practice.

Just when I thought spring was here, snow fell on Friday night. Rumors were flying that it would dump up to 11 inches, but we got less than an inch. Thank goodness.

After the snowstorm of yesterday we have had some signs of spring with a white and brown rabbit coming out of the woods and eating some green grass. On the way to church a crane flew across from a brook. Is this snow the “poor man’s fertilizer”? It went almost as fast as it came.
