FEBRUARY IS NOT A BARGAIN

February is not a bargain
Besides its cold and long dark nights
Its icy streets and frozen lakes and rivers
It has the audacity to cheat us out of a couple days
And wallowing in its own ego
Still claims to be a month.

~Fish Hawk .... 2011

Good evening, Mayor.

I’m ready for February because it means that March is almost here. :)

We don’t get the cold, cold winter that you do, but I’m tired of damp, foggy, gloomy days. I’m looking forward to spring color.

Winter takes his bow
Bending low the leafless limbs
carry weight of snow
             falling soft as eider down
             forests wear a wedding gown

Happy February!






Thank You, Amy, For Your Great February opening! And Now, A poem and song of February from "The PIRATES OF PENZANCE";

For some ridiculous reason,
to which, however, I've no desire to be disloyal,
Some person in authority,
I don't know who,
very likely the Astronomer Royal,
Has decided that, although for such a beastly month as February,
twenty-eight days as a rule are plenty,
One year in every four his days shall be reckoned as nine and twenty.
Through some singular coincidence
I shouldn't be surprised if it were owing to the
agency of an ill-natured fairy
You are the victim of this clumsy arrangement,
having been born in leap-year, on the
twenty-ninth of February;
And so, by a simple arithmetical process,
you'll easily discover,
That though you've lived twenty-one years, yet,
if we go by birthdays, you're only five
and a little bit over!
RUTH. and KING. Ha! ha! ha! ha!
Ho! ho! ho! ho!
FRED. Dear me!
Let's see! (counting on fingers)
Yes, yes; with yours my figures do agree!
ALL. Ha! ha! ha! ho! ho! ho! ho!
FRED. (more amused than any) How quaint the ways of Paradox!
At common sense she gaily mocks!
Though counting in the usual way,
Years twenty-one I've been alive,
Yet, reckoning by my natal day,
I am a little boy of five!
RUTH and KING. He is a little boy of five! Ha! ha! ha!
ALL. A paradox, a paradox,
A most ingenious paradox!
Ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!, etc.

That’s Ok..I posted that beach picture last night on the January thread!

It was 63 then It’s 26 now and dropping.
The radar showed we got snow..but I only had rain and some thunderstorms earlier..
We just aren’t accustomed to several days in a row of such cold weather..but it’s here and will stay awhile.
I have 2 kinds of soup in the freezer and lots of chocolate..I’m in great shape to stay put.
;o)
