Playlist for Sunday, April 2, 2017: You're Never Fully Dressed Without Muck Boots

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I'm walking toward it. I must believe in Spring, but if that light turns out to be a neon no vacancy sign for The Bates Motel (and I have a suspicion it WILL), I am finding the largest comforter in the world and diving back under it. Spring, Spring, Spring wrote Johnny Mercer. Well, who would have pegged him for Mr. Sunshine?

But the grass looks a little greener, I'll give you that. I was out, picking up the 17,000 sticks dropped by my half-dead maples (thank you, Windstorm), and I noticed a clump of sod scrapped up by my snow plow "staff", picked it up to right it, and was immediately stung by some sort of THIS IS MY SOD, TOUCH IT NOT insect. Really? It's March and you're territorial? I guess it's within its buggy rights, as it has lasted (or was birthed) during March Hell '17, and deserves its little clump of muck. But man, a bug bite in Lent? If I believed in(stead of Spring) omens, this harbinger wouldn't harbor well! What's next? Ahhh, yes...a rain of locusts. (Do smart-ish phones have a forecast icon for that? No effing doubt.)

But shaking the blues (and bugs) away, I see clearly that (Tra La!) these 40-watt light bulb skies will soon bring April Showers and daffodils, and this Naughty Baby will Grow Up, Get a Bran' New Suit, Slap That Bass, and Sing!  So Long, Farewell...see you on Sunday, in SPRING!
