Spring arrived last week, but I was too sick to notice. Today I realized that due to bad weather and not feeling good, it had been over two weeks since I had taken any of the motorcycles out. So at lunch time I took the KLR out to see some of the fields that are in bloom. When there are a million of them, these weeds don’t look half bad. The arrival of spring has also been noted by the arrival of two of our favorite birds, the one who pounds on our chimney, and the one who poops on our car. At least the new fireplace doesn’t seem to resonate as loudly as the old one.
