The calendar says Spring doesn't arrive until Palm Sunday, March 20th. But folks, I'm telling you Spring is here!
Yesterday the temps were up to 77 degrees. I took sought to take advantage of the spring like temperatures and began laying flagstone around my compost pile. I had to quit after about an hour of that hard labor, I was sweating. I had to quit folks. I am of that age that if I get overheated there may be serious consequences. Bill said even he got dizzy working outside. We both came inside to the cooler climes of Casa Tipton-Kelly.

These days I have new friends and new "good times." One day too Casa Tipton-Kelly will be no more, only a faint reminder of the happy and contented life that Bill and I enjoy now.
Today I go to work for my regular 3 to ll PM shift at the hotel. The hotel is undergoing complete renovations thus creating some discombobulation of everyone's regular routine. But all that will be well worth it because I'm telling you folks, that hotel is absolutely fabulous now. I am so proud to work there. I don't work in any dumps. Oh okay, I'll admit it. I am a hotel snob.
I'm back on my regular shift. I don't like switching around every week. I lose track of when I'm supposed to work plus I can't plan my "other" life. Right now I have a balance that works for me. Part-time work and retirement doing what I want and enjoying doing. If I'm working all the time, especially filling in on short notice, then I feel like one of those firemen who sleep at the firehouse waiting for a call to slid down the pole and fight the latest fire. I don't mind filling in occasionally folks, but not all the time, on a regular basis. I work part-time. I'm not a substitute worker.
I'm posting two videos to You Tube I took. One of the renovations at the hotel and the other of the new daffodils that have arrived this Spring at Casa Tipton-Kelly. Hopefully I'm not infringing on anyone's copyright status. Most of my last videos that I posted to You Tube were blocked by You Tube because I dared to have background music in them. God forbid I would prevent one of these overpaid entertainers from getting a few more pennies for their "art." It's not like I have ads on my blog and I'm making money from posting those videos. What a time we live in folks, every one is so hyper about political correctness and copy right infringement but yet we're bombarded every day with incessant ads from all angles. Thank God I got rid of my land line which I DON'T MISS AT ALL. At least I stopped that one form of ad harassment. Should've done that a LONG TIME AGO.
Okay, I'm ranting now and I shouldn't be. Such a beautiful day outside. Think nice things Ron.
