From the greys of November to the whites of Winter we are now at the point where the greening of Spring is slowly beginning. April is a vibrant and busy month for Mother Nature as she readies the landscape for her annual flurry of colorful changes. The land slowly emerges and wakens from its long winter slumber as do we, the humans who live here. A fresh start, renewed plans, hopes and expectations are alive once more. A new beginning of sorts. A feeling of confidence that things might get better now that the doldrums of winter have been left behind. Or so it seems, and so we try for a while until the cold dark damp, and rainy days of November return once again and force us back into our dark emotional caves to once again wait with great anticipation for another glorious coming of Spring.........With a cold grey rainy day upon us, it was not a fit morning to be outside. It was a cold rain falling when Pheebs and Kelly slipped out the door for their daily morning walk. Pheebs wouldn't even go off the porch. Walk canceled!! Minutes later when Pheebs and I reluctantly trudged out to the Jeep and headed off on our morning ride we were soon disappointingly home again in about twenty cold and wet dreary minutes.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Mrs. Jones was reading a letter at breakfast. Suddenly she looked up suspiciously at her husband. "Henry," she said, "I've just received a letter from mother saying she isn't accepting our invitation to come and stay, as we do not appear to want her. What does she mean by that? I told you to write and say that she was to come at her own convenience. You did write, didn't you?" "Yes, I did," said the husband. "But I, I couldn't spell 'convenience,' so I made it 'risk.'"

A Sunday school teacher asked her second graders if anyone knew another name for God. She was picturing answers like 'Lord' or 'Almighty'.After a long moment of silence, a little boy raised his hand and said, "Howard." "Howard?" replied the confused teacher. "You know," continued the boy, "Howard be thy name."
