It's spring, bloggers, but don't let that get to you.

Dear fellow bloggers:

You are about to experience (and I have already so maybe you have too) a slight slump in your blog's traffic. (The same slump happens at yarn stores but I digress.) It's something called "Spring", and for some reason this coming of "Spring" thing leads people away from their computers and into the outdoors.

I seem to be in a Hitchhiker's Guide frame of mind this week: Don't Panic. This "outside" thing is temporary, it's an election year, and as long as you've posted today you do have permission from one of the goddesses of the blogosphere to go outside. Remember, those garden people will be back to check on your blog later and they'll want to know they missed something while they were gone.

Have a good one. xo

    Spring sprung early this year in So Cal so I have not been looking at blogs much lately, but it's raining today.

    I have my peas up and tomatoes planted. Humming birds and song birds abound. Temps in mid 70's, ain't life grand.

    I have made a pledge to stay away from the political blogs until the Dem's race is settled, just too much drama for me.


  2. The hideous weather (for here) has kept my own Significant Other out of the garden - where she's driving both of us insane.

    Fair enough - I'm wearing out the floor staring at my waiting motorcycle... and then at the snow...

    S'heah, like SHE was the only one driving anyone insane? Me and mine, we are both culpable in these circumstances. *G*

    What manner of siccle you ridin?

    I have old dreams of a '71 Norton with an 850 Kit.
    The yellow tanks.
    Damn that exhaust sound. Damn it.

    Course, a mid 80's Ducati Desmo 900 would suffice to put my dreams to rest.

    And for the more longterm rides, any BMW can dream me away across the continent in any direction.

    Alas. Sigh. I don't ride no mo. It sure was fun, though, back then.

    My reality was a twin '67 Triumph single carb (Tiger), a few 350 Honda twins (CB/CX/flatttracked), and a few 750 K model Honda's, with mod's. I never rode my dreams.


    All of a sudden, it's like I'm buried under 15 ft. of snow. How'd you do that? ;-)

    Speakin of ridin a siccle thru Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite, CA, in the spring after the thaw:

    I've walked this way, often. Early to mid 70's:

    Those were good walks, back then.
    I miss them as much as that '71 Norton my roomie had and never let me ride.

    Thanks for the advice. I do have yellow roses blooming in my yard.
    I needed a pep-talk.

    what the hell kind of flowers are those? they're gorgeous color turns me on.

  8. Where I come from they're called cornflowers.

    Phew! I thought it was my after shave.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
