Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

Oooooh… nice… warm…

.
Spring fever has me by the throat; patio-surfing season cannot get here soon enough. The weather here is so great that today that I spent some time outside getting a few of the flowerbeds ready. It will take a while to get all of the beds set the way they should be. Mother Nature so far seems agreeable with the idea of an early start to the growing season. It is hard to believe all of that snow is gone already. Of course, Mother Nature can be fickle.

Dad used to advise that planting flowers (in this area) before Mother’s Day was iffy, up until then there is always the chance of a killing freeze. If I can get all of the beds prepared by April 15th, I may chance planting a few of the smaller beds early if the weather is willing.
