Happy April Fool's Day... they told us it was supposed to snow... April Fool's... it is sleeting. Possibly followed by snow later, but doubt it. My poor Bradford pears want to open their blooms... but alas... they will freeze and the bees won't have much to nectar on...not enough dandelions blooming yet.

Tim, I'll take everyone's word that the boys & their birthday cake were delightful. I'm not using that other big medium. (Our chatty one, yes.) That's on principle, as is yours.

Congrats to the boys & fam on this milestone!
I had a wonderful time watching RVMoon all night on my ride back to sunny Florida. It was nice seeing it and being able to look around at things lit up by it as well. Kept from getting a stiff neck.

Thank you for that. I'll watch the talk this evening after company.

We knew some of this already, but it seems there is always more to learn.

Not with sleet...but I'm shaking...was just a wreck in front of house from slick roads...17 year old gal hit neighbors mailbox and our tree...car on side...she was hanging by seat belt....window smashed...held her hand and spoke to her until EMS got there...ran out without coat when I saw the car out front. She was unconcious when I first got there.

Ding, ding, ding! Now can I congratulate somebody on a milestone?

I do believe Carl has rung the Unicorn bell at the 75,000th post. He'll be farting rainbows all day, but it's okay: they smell like butterflies!

So how do you know what you want or need?
Do you mean you think all of that stuff on your own?

I guess crossing another thousand post threshold has become so common place that y'all donít notice it anymore. Carl captured the unicorn and that's no joke.

Scary! I hope she'll be ok and you didnít get frostbite. I'm sure your presence was a great comfort to her. Minutes seem like hours when you're hurt and scared.

Poor thing, when she regained consciousness, she kept asking where she was, and what happened. There was an EMG from next town down the road that was coming down the road before the city's crew got there and he stopped, crawled in and took over holding her head still and holding her body up so she wasn't hanging. I was relieved to be able to stop and come in and get warm...no frostbite...ran my hands under cool water warmed slowly.

OMG, Sir Cumference made me notice!
Congrats Carl, and thanks Wayne for the memory. I think
