Spring Equinox

Hello my dearest Friends,

I hope you are well and safe. It is the official first day of Spring today, Happy First day of Spring! least for us. I imagine birds are building nests and lots of courting going on? I think it's very cool that some male birds entice female birds with their built nests or the preening and displaying of their maleness? I think the nest building is far more practical than saying, look how pretty I am!

I heard there were tornadoes in Arkansas. I think a lot of those places found in Tornado alley should automatically qualify for a Safe room. I am shocked to have heard of the one that touched down in Northern Ontario here. I seen it on YouTube and was amazed that such a event can happen around here. Now I must wonder if it's safe in my little forest any more and where on earth would I go. Yikes!

Discussions in chat have been about storms, snow and spring. I am not looking forward to the storms that cause power outages. It is annoying. Poor weather makes for poor signals for my satellite dish too and can't watch television. Well, at least we can watch DVD movies on our little player as long as we remembered to charge it up. Candlelight, MP3 players or movies are good for temporary measures.

I know you must run as duty calls. I hope you find the following jokes, riddles and tongue twisters amusing. Least have a smile. :)

Why do cowboys always die with their boots on?
So they won't stub their toes when they kick the bucket.

(i) Mountains will crumble and temples will fall, and no man can survive its endless call. What is it?

(ii) How can you clasp someone's hands together in such a manner that they cannot leave the room without unclasping them?

(iii) Two convicts are locked in a cell. There is an unbarred window high up in the cell. No matter if they stand on the bed or one on top of the other they can't reach the window to escape. They then decide to tunnel out. However, they give up with the tunneling because it will take too long. Finally one of the convicts figures out how to escape from the cell. What is his plan?

A big bug bit a bold bald bear and the bold bald bear bled blood badly.

Imagine an imaginary menagerie manager managing an imaginary menagerie.

The answers are at the end as usual. Have a great day and evening. Please take care and stay safe, I'd like to see you get home.


A: (i) Time
