Well, the truth about spring coming in like a lion (March) and out like a lamb (April) is living up to its reputation. As I sit here, my feet are cold and I’m watching crows extract something really exciting out of the wet, wet grass in the backyard. Better worms than whatever they found so interesting about my morning paper, right? Seriously, this morning I found it in the middle of the front yard torn apart. Sigh.
