The Merry Month of May







It's a beautiful day outside, never mind the clouds, the sun'll be shining soon. I've posted some pictures of my fair little city (I didn't take them, of course).

Just as I was about to grab my cd player & go for a walk, I got a phone call from a customer. Of course, I have the day off, & the two that are working could've handled it, but I figured I'm only a couple of miles away so I went in. Christie hates it when I go into work on my day off, probably for good reason. I don't know what it is, but if I go in for just a few minutes on a day off I have a little better feeling about things. It's not that I don't trust the others when I'm not there, far on the contrary, I have great employees, it's just the way it is.

Now that that's over with, I think I'll grab a seat outside with a cup of coffee & a magazine, enjoy the flowers & wait for Christie to get here so we can head up north to see Dan & Kelly in Ludington. It should be fun.

In other news, Junior is now a college graduate & a resident of Grand Haven. The town is very excited to have him, well, me at least.

I think I posted this poem last year, but it's worth repeating, methinks...



The Month of May

by Wendy Cope

The Month of May, the merry month of May,
So long awaited, and so quickly past.
The winter's over, and it's time to play.

I saw a hundred shades of green today
And everything that Man made was outclassed.
The month of May, the merry month of May.

Now hello pink & white & farewell grey.
My spirits are no longer overcast.
The winter's over & it's time to play.

Sing fa la la la la, I dare to say,
(Tried being modern but it didn't last)
The month of May, the merry month of May.

I don't know how much longer I can stay.
The summers come, the summers go so fast,
And soon there will be no more time to play.

So carpe diem, gather buds, make hay.
The world is glorious, Compare, contrast
December with the merry month of May.
Now is the time, now is the time to play.

The town of Grand Haven is best this time of year. JR and Debbie have come at a good time. Let them know that I said hello.

Great pic of you and Christie! I'm glad things are going well and the weather is nice. I'll be up this weekend planning for the wedding. Mark your calender: May 31, 2008. :)
