Spring Peepers; Upside-down; Slinkies; A million-five, Beautiful Navajo tradition; 2nd growth

Item 1:  Spring Peepers are a-comin'
when muck warms,soon

(The original)

Yes, written on recycled elephant dung paper from Plowshares on Main St.  Our finest paper!

Item No. 2:
Dee's Blue Plate Special

Just a little supper Dee cooked up last night, 2-20-13.
Vegetable Upside-Down cake.

One of the reasons we have lived so close to being seventy-seven
is that we have lived an enchanted life since Dee has been cooking for us, which is going on thirty (30) years now.  This is a delicious dish, good for a main meal, or even breakfast.

(enlarge to read)

Dee, originally from Pleasant Valley, Maryland.


Item 3: 

.......A cartoon seen in this week's NEW YORKER......

 No 4:

A million-five; beautiful Navajo Tradition

(Sent to the SRN by Mary Zeitlow Sullivan, Waukesha)

 And 5:

The Morning Glory bud shown last week
re the Judith Williams Die-Hard
temporary (?) 2nd growth re-volunteer plant
is open presently, though snow is outside.

You are invited to use this flower for your screensaver image.
We are.

 2/22/13 Beyond the brave Morning Glory new bloom
a lone shoveler clears the snow from the 
vacant Clarke Hotel just after the street light 
was purposefully turned off.  He was a grim but determined
executive-type dressed in a woolen (looked like) 
formal topcoat and a gray woolen (looked like) stocking cap.

One must be inspired by such sightings;
hope springs eternal from all 'gossimer' shoulder-bent beings
in downtown Waukesha.....and it is going to RISE!

Haynes Bunker, pharmacy clerk and banjoist
strode to his 1940's downtown employment at
then Clarke's Walgreen Drugstore right behind
where that stalwart snow shoveler works 
this early morning.  Haynes was our grandfather.
