Monday, Monday-

A sunny Monday morning at Foggygates, but unseasonably cold. They say it may snow Thursday...

Still, better to be driving to work on a Monday morning when the sun is out than when it is raining or cloudy. My wife's aunt from New York likes to tell a story about Monday mornings back in the '50s. She used to spend her Summer weekends at a popular resort area several hundred miles from the city, and there were a large number of Manhattanites on the last, late-night train back to the city on Sunday night. The train got into Grand Central station at about 3 a.m., and instead of waking everyone up, the engineer would simply pull the passenger cars off onto a siding and let everyone sleep. Along about 6 or 7 a.m. people would start to get up, brush their teeth and wander off to work.

The train, of course, is long gone, but I'll bet that a few booklovers manage to enjoy their Monday morning commutes-

What a great story!

We're having a bright, sunshiny morning here after a weekend of cold and snow. More rain and snow the rest of the week. Bah humbug.

You know the saying, March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb? Well, this is one demonic, blood-sucking lamb. These April showers are probably going to usher in flowers Little Shop of Horrors style.

Phoebe- Demonic, blood-sucking lambs? I wants me one of those, to go with the ravenous Man-eating Pliocene clams from a few weeks back.

I'm gonna make me a zoo!

Joey- sorry, the demon lambs ate them all. Also the coffee lady.

Yeah it was warm when I left Utah last week. It was colder than hell in Michigan when I got there. Now that I am back in Utah, it's cold here too. Obviously, I can't freaking win.
