Ludlow: Spring is here, so where’s the warmer weather?
I think Mother Nature is asleep at the switch. She totally missed the first day of spring on Tuesday.
When I went out in the afternoon, the temperature, according to my car’s thermometer, was 27 degrees and it was as windy as could be. Doesn’t spring mean that it’s supposed to be warming up outside?
But we do live in northeastern Wisconsin, not California or Florida or some other place down south. So get realistic. It is what it is.
I’m just anxious for warmer weather that can’t come soon enough. I want to put the bowling ball in the closet, dust off the golf clubs and get out on the course. Our golf league begins in May, so patience is required. We still have a few weeks of bowling to get through.
And I’m sure we probably have one or more snow storms to endure before it gets significantly warmer. Mother Nature always has one more snow event in late March or April for us to deal with.
► Did you hear this one?
On the day of a guy’s big job interview he woke up late. Frantically he threw on a suit. “Oh, no!” he thought. “My tie!” His dad was out of town and he did not know how to tie a tie.
He grabbed a tie and ran out the door. “Excuse me, sir,” he said to a crossing guard. “I have an important job interview. Can you please help me tie this tie?”
“Sure” said the guard. “Just lie down on this bench.” Well, if someone was going to help him, he wasn’t going to ask any questions.
After the guard finished, the tie looked good, and the guy just had to ask why he had to lie down.
“Well,” the crossing guard replied, “in my previous job I learned how to tie ties on other people when they were lying down.”
“What was your previous job?” the man asked incredulously.
“I ran a mortuary,” said the crossing guard.
And then there is this one:
Recently divorced, a woman moved back to her home town hoping to start over again. A few weeks later, while making a dentist appointment, she was surprised to see she recognized the dentist’s name as a good looking boy from my high school 20 years ago.
However, upon walking into the dentist’s office, she realized he must be someone else. He was bald, had a big beer belly and looked a lot older than her.
Just to be sure, on her way out she asked if he went to the high school that she had attended. “Yeah”, he responded, “I graduated in ’91.”
“Oh, my gosh,” the woman excitedly said. “you were in my class.”
“Really?” he said, “What class did you teach?”
Have a good week, everyone.
