Saturday, February 28, 2015 – Today I went to visit my family for the birthday party of my youngest granddaughter. Not only do they have some fun pets, they also have various birds and squirrels that visit their yard.

Sunday, March 1, 2015 – The first daffodils are in bloom on my street and when I went to visit my neighbors’ buddha (and daffodils) I found him wearing some rather festive beads. Is he still celebrating Mardi Gras? The crocus and forsythia are in bloom too, as well as various plants starting to bud or break through the soil.

“I did not tell Fat this, but technically he had become a Buddha. It did not seem to me like a good idea to let him know. After all, if you are a Buddha you should be able to figure it out for yourself.”
