Lookie, Lookie!


Look what I found in my garden yesterday!
Yes indeedie do, I have crocuses. Maybe it really is spring, after all.
I have a busy day of work ahead of me and I'm drooping because I stayed up late after returning from a meeting at 10 p.m. to watch LOST.
It wasn't worth missing the sleep, which makes me sad, because it was a new show and I really want to know what the heck is going on with the island folks.
But previews for next week look exciting. Why oh why am I hooked on another television show?
Tomorrow is my dentist appointment. I'll be getting a tooth pulled, so you may not be hearing from me on Friday. We'll see how it goes.
A did not do well with his appointment. He liked the gas. He really liked the gas, and he was nice and high because when the hygienist came in to take his x-rays she sat him up in the chair and he said "wheeeee!"
But when she put the film in his mouth he struggled and gagged and shoved it out with his tongue and thereafter refused to open his mouth again. It looks like we will be paying big buck for the pediatric dentist.
Oh joy.

LOVE crocus. It's like this brilliant voice in the yard singing out "spring's here, spring's here." Great photo!

Hwy Bro, check to make sure they aren't just candy wrappers or other debris left over from winter. I hate to be a spoil sport, but any crocus that raises it's foolish head in March in Star Valley has a death wish. Maybe it's just an optimist blade of grass, which I am clearly not(optimist and grass). Anyway Alleen I am sorry that you have to go through the expense of a (potentially) non-gagging dentist. I hope it works. The dentist is a necessary evil. D---it. I can't wait to see you in April and I will be thinking of you with deep sympathy tomorrow. (almost today)

Wyo sis and her hubby G. said that the things growing by the side of the house were irises or so they think. They are only an inch or so tall now.
