Relevant to one facing another decade birthday (30, 40, 50, etc.,). The Calvin and Hobbes comic strip was such a wonderful thing. He drew just exactly enough of it and then walked away. I have all the books. Hmmm. May be time for a reread. . .
Yep. What I wanted to tell a middle-school English teacher who was a squee-ing fangirl over Shakespeare. Actually, “Romeo and Juliet” has a fairly low body count for Shakespeare, especially if you’re only counting the onstage carnage.
This would be hysterically funny if the durn Bradford Pear trees (Pyrus calleryan) that are all over town weren’t in bloom again. At the moment, (achoo!) it’s just bitterly (achoo! . . . .ACHOO!) iron(achoo!) ic. TWONK! God, I hate them.

I just laughed aloud at that cat gif. Talk about unexpected — that’s really great. As for pollen, have you seen this? The fellow who posted it is the Kerr County Sheriff.
Hilarious! Sorry about the pollen, though – one of those things about spring that are the hold-your-breath kind, but definitely not in anticipation.
