Spring-Easter and Fun Stuff

Spring is here—finally. I had enough snow and ice and am ready for some good old fashioned wind, rain and hail, who doesn’t love spring in Wyoming.


Watch any TV lately? Basketball on every channel—if you like basketball this is the time of year to get by the TV and enjoy.


Watched the grand kids hunt Easter eggs Sunday. I can still remember when I was running through the park in the city-wide hunt for the elusive eggs. Seems like it was not fifty years ago—but it was.


Hey on a lighter note. I have been reading all the stuff about who the political candidates are related to. They talk about tenth cousins once removed. I have no idea what that even means. I had a great uncle that said he, “never wanted to see the family tree because he was afraid he would find someone hung as a horse thief.” I would love it if I could find a horse thief as my tenth cousin or even a great-great somebody who was hung as a horse thief—COOL.

Leap Year

Hurray for me, I made it through leap day, that good old extra day that comes but once every four years. Every year we elect a president we get an extra day. Do we really need an extra day of campaigning?

Here is what needs to be done. Add a bunch of extra days to the other three years and then every fourth year—the presidential lies year. Ur-a, I meant campaigning year. Anyway let’s make that year just two days long, February 29th and the first Tuesday after a Monday in November (Election Day). Only it won’t be the first Tuesday after a Monday in November anymore- we’ll just call it the next day after the leap day every fourth year.

This way all campaigning will take place on leap day with 24 hours of TV campaign commercials and every page of the newspaper campaign adds. I will spend the day on the ski slope and then watch some TVO when I get home.

What a great plan!
