Wisconsin has finally decided that spring has arrived. We were supposed to get a snowstorm this weekend, but it missed us. There are leaf buds on the trees, and the ground has taken a decidedly green tinge-- and Mom promises us that it not mold or moss! She promises us that some of us can go outside as soon as it dries out. She pointed out that we don't like getting cleaned, so the loads and loads of mud outside will have to dry out first. I told her that I don't mind wearing galoshes and I'd go outside in them-- I've even got a rainjacket! That didn't seem to work, so I'll work on her on that!
