Harbingers of Spring Part Deux

Last year I posted about things that let us know that Spring has sprung.  This is technically not an update, just my take on Spring a year later. 

Spring where I live tis the season for potholes.  Most municipalities open tip lines so that concerned citizens can report the most outrageous potholes.  They don’t actually fix the potholes, they just want to know where they should not drive.  This looks like a small hole yet it is obviously very deep.  Fortunately some good Samaritan sunk a shopping cart into the hole to warn their fellow motorists.

View From The Couch

h1n1I know that the title gives the impression that the view is from a couch potato, but that is not the view.  I spent the last week confined to the house getting over the flu.  My doctor believed that it was H1N1, but did not bother to run any blood work since the results would not be available until after I was cured or dead.  That is not a quote, but the reality.  I’ll have to admit that it was the worst flu that I have experienced, but the deaths that I have read about all seemed to be caused by the secondary issues.  My condition settled into my chest and that is what my doctor treated.
