A week of springtime weather has almost melted the snow in our gardens and in the local park and is drying up the mud left behind by the retreating flood waters.
There’s an old saying here in North Dakotaland. We have four seasons: cold, mud, wind, and dust. Right now we’re leaving mud season, and wind season is just starting. Never a dull moment in North Dakota weather.
Fortunately, neither cold, nor mud, nor wind, seem to discourage me from gleaning some quick hits and varia. Enjoy:

It was Argie’s birthday.
He’d like everyone to know that he’s no longer a puppy and his a grown-ass dog.
