Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my guys and dolls!  How are you?  We’re still on the temperature rollercoaster.  It’s been weeks.  40’s today, 60’s tomorrow.  I never know what to wear outside anymore.  Cold and dry in the morning, hot and humid by lunchtime, snow in the evening, frost overnight.  How can you prepare for that?  Just take your entire wardrobe with you, and then you’ll be “covered.”

We had a quiet Easter at home with me, Junior, and Señor Zanza.  Some ham and mashed potatoes, various veggies and some hot buns.  The ham didn’t last long with Junior around.  We didn’t color any eggs this year.  That’s the first time since Junior’s birth.   

What a terrible loss that UW sustained at the hands of Duke University.  Just like our Packer season:  a wonderful record topped by a loss.  Well, the fact of the matter is that placing second, or third, is nothing to be ashamed of.  Quite the contrary.  Instead of mourning the loss, we should celebrate that UW made it as far as it did.  There’s nothing “wrong” with second place.  It still places UW very near the top of the basketball heap.

Did your candidates win in the election?  Mr. Mayor Dickert held off a challenge to his seat, but the President of Mount Pleasant was unseated.  My candidate, Honesty Wrapped in Common Sense, didn’t appear anywhere on my ballot.  I can’t wait to see what Racine looks like at the end of Mr. Mayor’s term, which will mark 10 years in office for him and should show that Racine is a “Top Ten city.”  I’m not even sure of what that means.  Politicians are the masters of double-talk.  Some people talk of a clique of politicians locally that results in thousands of tax dollars for certain clique members.  Who knows?

Here’s a cute little video for the dog lovers amongst us:

Sometimes I swear that the tension in my head sounds just like that howling to me.  Not hard to see who the alpha dog is in the video.  I mean, the husky isn’t fetching slippers.

That’s it for this week, my Zoltar® Rangers™.  I enjoy a wide variety of subjects and people.  Thank you for sharing it with me.

How elections work:

I love you my dears.  The rising temperatures will mean more time spent outside in play.  Enjoy yourself, but start out slow.  We don’t need any more injuries than the Packers do.  Keep your eyes peeled for motorcycles and kids.  And kids on motorcycles. I love you all.

I'm not sure my dog liked the video as he was barking the whole time.

Thanks for a wonderful blog Madame. Spring will come to Wisconsin.

A couple of defeats but it is great that the Badgers went all the way to the show.

As for the other loss I hope Racine can survive 4 more years of lies and deceit

The results of almost all elections of late perplex me. All you can do is roll with it, Madame. The dumming down of the population is becoming more and more evident, and it makes it ripe for the picking for those who practice dishonesty.
