If ever I would have advise for parents.....

If ever you say 'listen to me', mean it.
Children will listen.
Guide them, then step away.

Second day of Spring

It was actually taken yesterday, the first day of Spring, but it'll look like this for nearly two more months, so I figured 'what's the hurry'?

Ok, maybe a bit of encouragement.....

Earlier, in a post some damn place, maybe facebook, I said that I, we, my generation had little to offer the current youngun's on what to do.  It occurs to me I do have an inspirational song for them. Here tis:

A contrast

By our standards, it warmed up today, nearly 48 degrees, f.

A few days ago I got two bunches of alstroemeria, (sp), I like for their long persistence in a vase.Here. Where the windowpane around them can have an inch of ice on the inside in a minus 10 degree night. 

The temperature is gradually warming: highs in the mid 40's, the coming week, lows only around 10. Springtime in the Rockies. 

Hope you are all well.

It's all better now.....

The high temps for the next week are in the low 40's.....Spring has sprung. Granted, a couple days the low will be in the single digits, but wtf, it's Montana. Taken today, after a wet snowfall last night:

A neighbor shoveled the new 4" of wet. I kept my nitro handy, he is in his 40's afterall....

The iron fence is almost 3.5 ft. ........

Perhaps March is Spring for you......

Taken today, the 7th of March

For reference, the iron post fence is just over 3 feet high.  It got positively warm today, up to 29f.

What next?

Fiona, aka The Adorable One has started a new endeavor. You might remember she was born with a giant omphalocele, portions of her liver and organs were outside her body, and statistically had a 50% chance of survival.  She's thrived, and you'd never know she has any issues at all.  One thing these kids do lack is a good muscle structure over her abdomen, where her liver and organs lie.

So, naturally, she's decided she wants to be a wrestler.  She's in a class at school.
