Guys and Bananas and Spring

Yesterday, I overheard a young man say that no guy would ever eat a banana in public. Unfortunately, I was in a setting where I not only could not laugh, but I had to pretend  that I had no idea what he was referring to. Fortunately, I had an opportunity to slip away to where I could explode. Ah, those tricky situations where my lives collide! Now I shall never see a man eating a banana without having to hide a smile.

On to more serious matters. At the risk of sounding like my grandfather who was, like all Vermont farmers, obsessed with the weather, I have never seen a spring like this before! We have had day after day of temperatures in the high 70's and low 80's, when usually we're just starting to melt and feel lucky if we see a robin. Right now, I'm sitting with all my windows open listening to a deafening chorus of frogs (spring peepers) from the nearby beaver ponds, and I couldn't be happier. This is my favorite time of year, except that it usually comes in May, not March.  I worry about what's in store, but not too much.
