Hello, my May flowers! How are you? Spring is still bursting out all over out there. I think the flowering trees in the city are trying to impress us with their beauty. I’m impressed. I’m almost stupefied. Everywhere you look is a glorious display of form and color. The shrubs, the flowers, even the grass, are vibrant. Hail to thee, o joyous spring!
Did any of you go to the Kiwanis Pancake Day last Saturday? Junior and I went with Mr. Zanza. My, Junior can pack away the pancakes. My, o my! Junior is at that sensitive age where he is aware of the opposite sex, but he has no idea of what to do with them. I pointed out that all those pancakes might affect his waistline, thus making him less attractive to girls. That was a mistake. I really hurt him. To compensate for the emotional pain, he ate even more. The poor dear. Well, we certainly got our money’s worth. I wonder if they’ll let us back in next year.
I do not want to start an argument here, but I feel I must say that I endorse the Positively Racine campaign. Like Ms. WhyNot, I can see good arising from it. Our city needs a better self-image. Once people are of a positive mindset, it becomes contagious. That’s what we need to move forward. Of course, Mr. OrbsCorbs and others have a right to disagree. In fact, they positively do.
Of course, the state recall primary was yesterday. I am so frustrated that our political system has become an either/or operation. There is no middle ground, there are no moderate candidates, there is no compromise. Either you are this or you are that. There is no third option other than the useless write-in. The ideological gridlock is complete, cemented in place with hatred and fear. It’s a shame that for being so technologically connected, we are personally disconnected by politics. I have an opinion of politicians, but I will not sully my own blog with it.
Finally, I would like to give a big, hearty THANK YOU to our local area law enforcement officials, firefighters, and EMTs. You put your very lives on the line to protect ours. We want you to know that we appreciate it. We want you to know that we are grateful for your work and your presence in our lives. May God bless you.
Bless you, too, my dear readers. Thank you for stopping by to try my “wares.” I am flattered by your attention. I love you all.

I hope you are enjoying the spring. Don’t forget to say a positive thing or two about our town. “You catch more flies with honey.” Stay sweet, my dears. Here’s a new word site: http://home.comcast.net/~wwftd/Frame1.html Schizothemia!
