I hope it wasn't just a figment of my imagination, or my old ears playing tricks on me, but I could swear that - as I was sucking down the last nicotine fix of the night - I heard a Heron. If so, that's as sure a sign as any that SPRING isn't too far off after all!!!!! Living in a place with only one or two seasons must be so very boring. Look what excitement others miss when it comes time to herald the "rebirth" of our world (in the vast, frozen wastelands of the arctic tundra) from it's icy slumber! I'm sorry for all the "snowbirds," but I really, truly do enjoy the seasons here in Michigan. I think I would wither away elsewhere ... ok, NOW off to bed!
