Tales from the O-NO Ranch

Shiver me timbers! Burrrrrr … when I went out to feed the ponies this first Sunday in the month of March, I had a hard time (not really) believing how cold it was. How cold was it? Wasn’t really all that cold temp-wise, as it was close to 30 degrees ” but the wind was howlin’ at about 50 miles an hour. That’s cold, gentle readers, that’s cold. In spite of what I have just said, I still am stickin’ by my previous convictions and statements a few weeks back that I think we are goin’ to have an early spring. I think I hit this one on the head; usually that doesn’t happen.

There’s a lot that goes on in this month of March this year of our Lord 2008. Here’s a brief preview of what’s stated on my calendar: First, my son Andy has a birthday in the first week of March. Then Daylight Savings Time begins on the 9th, followed by Palm Sunday on the 16th. St. Pat’s Day is on the 17th and spring arrives on the 20th. The 21st is Good Friday and is also Benito Juarez’s birthday. Who in the heck is Benito Juarez? Easter comes early this year and is of course, on the 23rd. Man, that’s a lot of things goin’ on in the month of March.
