Spring is truly on its way

I saw a groundhog yesterday. It was scuttling across the front porch of the Boy Scout Council Office out on Hwy 46. It was pretty spry, but a wee bit thin. Probably just getting up and about after its long winter nap.

This happens far more often than most people realize

So there I was, filling out a check in the grocery store. The amount was $16.48. The cashier turned to me and said, in a slightly expectant tone, "Sixteen forty-eight."

As God is my witness, it was all I could do to stop myself from snapping my head up and yelling out, "PEACE OF WESTPHALIA!" as quick as I could.

My fellow history buffs will understand, but nobody else will.
