“As restless as a willow in a wind storm …” or THE SECOND DAY OF SPRING

 

 

ORCHID PHOTO FOR THE SECOND DAY OF SPRING:DSC09309

Today was lunch day with the guys from the High School Class of ’57. We get together every other month at the original Pasta House in University City and compare aches, pains, naps, golf games, vacations and the weather. Yes, you’re right, it’s the old farts lunch day. Thankfully, we went to an all boys high school that unfortunately closed down ten years after we graduated. The last time we heard the building was being used to house fallen felons. Our graduating class consisted of 120 guys, and 13 guys showed up for today’s lunch. Hey, that’s more than 10%! Naturally, a lot of guys have moved out of the city.  And unfortunately, way too many have passed on.

Hey, we have a good time. Today, we all decided that we would like to go back to 1957 … but only if we could go back knowing what we know today.

And on the subject of spring birds … I saw a huge crow on my way home after lunch.CROW

Oh, yeah, spring might end tomorrow. We’re heading back to the frigid zone tomorrow with snow by Sunday. Crows are ill omens you know.

  1. No way. I’d dub that your Lucky Crow, but considering that weeks later, you still aren’t getting a spring, I know you wouldn’t believe me.

    Going back would ONLY be worthwhile if we were smarter.
