It’s Earth Day, Humpday and Springtime! Hurray!

I don’t know about your cities, but here in Portland, Ore., spring has arrived, hooray! It’s almost as if it waited for Earth Day ”which was Monday ”to settle in fully. As I type this, the birds are fluttering around outside my office window, darting past my frustrated cat on their way to the bird feeders, and the new leaves on the trees are rustling in a soft breeze. It’s SO FREAKIN GREAT. So happy Earth Day, everyone! And of course, Happy Humpday!
