Time for a little Spring cleaning.  Just in case you've lapsed during the wintertime, into treating your spouse or significant other as another piece of furniture, get out the charm and personality polish and try a few of these.  Remember the best things in life are thee....

  • Clouds - This one is easy because you've done
    it before... long ago!  Invest a Spring afternoon in looking for shapes in the clouds.  Take along a little bottle of wine.  If you're really adventurous, choose a field at the end of an airport runway....
  • Rainbows - Always a Spring delight!  The next time you see one: stop, sit down and watch it until it completely disappears.  Never done that have you!? 
    Did you know that         ra
    inbows eventually fold up like beach umbrellas?  (Would I lie to you....?)
  • Eyes - Quietly and intently gaze directly into his or her eyes next time you're talking. ( No you haven't; you just think you've taken a close look lately.)  See if "it's" still there!

*** ( My attorney advises me that neither liability nor paternity suits against op-ed writers for unexpected pregnancies will hold up in court - you're on your own on this one!)

  • Picnic - Invite that special someone out for a picnic at 12:00 o'clock. So, what's the big deal with that?  Well, that's 12:00 am (midnight!) not 12:00 pm (noon).  Make sure there is a full moon and re-read the disclaimer under "Eyes" above.

  • Forgiveness - Remember to qualify for forgiveness you must "sin" a little first.
And finally, remember that...

Ah, Spring!
 ... the shortest distance between two points is a pretty dull life.

I would venture to guess that it has been quite sometime since the author of this blog has stayed up beyond the midnight bewitching hour. But it is good to see that there still is some spark in the old guy's engine as Spring approaches. There is hope for all of us.
