Well so far so good. We've had a stretch of daze above freezing, and yesterday was actually warm. Warm as in everybody, and their dogs was out on the street making as much noise as possible.
In fact that's what woke me up.
There's them guy a few houses down that play dominoes all year under an aluminum awning regardless of rain or snow. Well with the sudden warm weather they was having a gleeful time yell'n, and slapping the pieces down on the board.
Loud board slapping is apparently a big part of the game, along with threatening each others lives over alleged fast ones.
Kids screaming, and radios playing is a sure sign that spring has returned to the City. The interesting thing is that fossilized carbon encrusted snow from the last blizzard is still huddled in this or that shady corner.
The nice weather reminds me that I still want a cat. More on that later.
