It is March and that means March Madness - basketball basketball basketball! The BIG DANCE! Actually a friend of mine coined that phrase!
GO GREEN GO WHITE! Yes, I am a Michigan State fan by way of marriage. Larry is a grad. We are really crazy right now. You should have heard us hootin and hollarin last night at the end of that game with OK. GEEZ! That was a cliff hanger.
But it is also March Madness on the Chesapeake Bay. The Big Dance. The osprey are back jockeying for their nest positions, but most come back to the same nests year after year, except when the Coast Guard clears them because of navigational concerns. All types of water fowl are migrating, and sailors and power boaters are moving their boats from being “on the hard” to slips around the bay. Cruise ships are making way down the Bay. Flowers are appearing and the smell of mulch permeates the air. Ahhhhh, tis spring but……….I sure wish it wasn’t 32 degrees and blowing 17 mph!! ENOUGH! Bring me some warmth and sun would be good also.
And spring means that Encore is not far from our spring concerts in May. And they are going to be fabulous! The music is so much fun. We have had such great rehearsals with a lot of humor………except when some of us weep through Les Miserables.
I can’t wait for these concerts!
Speaking of our music……..Cole Porter - Let’s Do it! I actually saw turkey vultures do it just about in my front yard. Another thing to make me laugh when we sing that song. LOL
I never understood cataracts. Until I got one. People who have vitrectomy surgery as I did this past fall almost always get a cataract. So I did. My left eye is simply not seeing. Surgery in April. Now I have a lot of sympathy for the singers that come up and tell they can’t see because of cataracts and bright lights. I guess we are all in this aging thing together. So if I play some wrong notes right now, you will understand why.
