Spring

The outdoor work continues this week. Soon it will get serious, and by serious I mean the use of gas-powered implements. May the spring treat us all well. May there be a minimum of poison ivy and ant bites. May the yard gnomes smile on us and keep order among the wild things. May the lawn mower and weed trimmer start without fail and perform flawlessly through the summer. May the ticks not be so small that they slip into the folds of our flesh only to be detected weeks later when they have become tight bags the size of marbles. Yes. May it all be so.
