    Re: It's Almost Spring!

    Spring has been teasing us
    I love the sunshine. The wamth in the air. Opening the windows - hearing the bird chrping. Wearing t-shirts again. Seeing the flowers (we already have some blooming!). Spring just has that "feeling" that there is hope - there is life - ANYTHING is possible.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: It's Almost Spring!

    In California's central valley, you KNOW when Spring is coming. It starts in February with almond blossoms, then come peach blossoms, plum blossoms, cherry blossoms...you get the picture. Two-thirds of the population are walking around with a headache, swollen watery eyes, runny noses, coughing, sneezing, and no voice. Little kids have fluid leaking out of every hole in their faces.
    It's absolutely beautiful, like snow on the trees. But it's a beautiful nightmare for allergy sufferers.

    Re: It's Almost Spring!

    Spring is coming, and all of our snow will soon melt(almost gone-hope there is no more). With spring comes CAMPING SEASON!We live 45 min away from Banff National Park ( in the rockies) and we camp every weekend, and almost all summer, since I am off work in the summer (YAY). We are starting to get the camping "itch" around our house, I think I like it so much because my husband does ALL of the camping cooking(he even makes us chocolate chip pancakes and turkey bacon for breakfast).

    wearing t-shirts again? I wear T-shirts year round. It does get cold here, btu tmy work and every store blasts the heat so wearing anything warmer makes it miserable to be inside.

    My eyes are itchy today and I have a sinus infection, but I still love the spring. My bing cherry tree is so pretty right now. The peach blossoms are done. The apricot blossoms are almost done and the apple tree is just starting to sprout some green. The apples always bloom last.

    I was just outside enjoying the cool evening...

    My work blasts the a/c so I wear lonmg sleeved tees all winter (plus a sweatshirt). In the spring and summer I wear tees because it's so hot outside - but inside I wear a sweatshirt and usually a blanket too.. and still I start shivering if I drink anything cold... when it's like 95 outside So yah, it's a spring thing. Plus I always wear long sleeved tees to DL so the first short sleeved Disneyland trip is awesome

    Re: It's Almost Spring!

    I love springtime, because (breaks into song)...

    All the world seems in tune
    On a spring afternoon,
    When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.
    Every Sunday you'll see
    My sweetheart and me,
    As we poison the pigeons in the park.

    When they see us coming, the birdies all try an' hide,
    But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide.
    The sun's shining bright,
    Everything seems all right,
    When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

    We've gained much notoriety,
    And caused much anxiety
    In the Audubon Society
    With our little games.
    They call it impiety
    And lack of propriety,
    And quite a variety
    Of unpleasant names.

    But it's not against any religion
    To want to dispose of a pigeon.

    So if Sunday you're free,
    Why don't you come with me,
    And we'll poison the pigeons in the park.
    And maybe we'll do
    In a squirrel or two,
    While we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

    We'll murder them all amid laughter and merriment,
    Except for the few we take home to experiment.
    My pulse will be quickenin'
    With each drop of strych'nine
    We feed to a pigeon.
    (It just takes a smidgin!)
    To poison a pigeon in the park.

    Thank You, Tom.

    Can't wait for summertime to start playing DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince's "Summertime" track....
    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    Re: It's Almost Spring!

    One word: flowers!

    I have about 15 stairs that lead up to our front door. I have a flower pot on every one of those (some are more like landings) and I LOVE this time of year because I have my flower pots out and filled with flowers. It's so cheery and I LOVE looking at them.

    The other thing is longer days!!!!

    Ha! I'm with you on that one. It isn't summer until that song is in full rotation on the ipod.
