Why am I not surprised?
As long as you don't get gnats looking for them in the grass.
And your hair does not get gnarled rolling in it.

Surprised?! I never met a gnomical gnome I didn't like...especially the gnomonist and ones with gnarly hair, gnawing on gnocchi. I think gnats are gnotobiotic.

Gnarly! I thought you wrote...into the gin. Guess I'm a little Tickle Pitckeb or Vice Admiral of the Narrow Seas...what have you.

Ages? Are we..like..talking, totally tubular? I can like so hear "Gag me with a spoon" already.

Luke, spotted any gnatcatchers lately?

It's too early here, still frozen solid. Ground
covered in snow, but with March coming and
April the gnatcatchers will be here: swallows.
They eat lots of bugs.GNATURALLY I can't wait for Spring.

Which brings us back to "blessing and curse." In this part of the world spring is known as "breakup." As the snow and ice disappear and buds start to burst, many of the unpaved (and some of the paved) roads become nearly or completely impassable as the surface heaves and buckles and the underlying ground thaws to a bottomless soup.

With the potholes we get I cannot but imagine the
situation with your streets and roads. What a
headache.

Here in the big city (about 5500 people) things aren't so bad, but out in the suburbs…

Actually, road-building and repair techniques have improved vastly in the past twenty years or so, and much of the problem has been eased or eliminated, at least on government-maintained roads; but years ago, on the main road east of town, my wife and I were suddenly up to our door handles in mud, and it took a bulldozer to get us out. Interesting experience. Beautiful spring day, it was, though.
