Spring me, baby

As the great Tom Lehrer once sang:
Spring is here, spring is here;
Life is skittles, and life is beer --
I think the loveliest time of the year is the spring.
I do. Don't you? 'Course you do.
Except for the fact that I don't either play skittles (the English bowling game) or eat them (the colorful fruit-flavored candies), and that I don't drink beer.

I baked some snickerdoodles to celebrate, instead. (I'm a snickerdoodle dandy. Snickerdoodle do or die.) I'd offer you a couple, along with a mug of steaming hot Hills Bros. Original Blend, but alas, you're not here. So I'll eat your snickerdoodles and drink your coffee for you. Mmmm... that's tasty.

Happy Vernal Equinox to all our friends in the northern hemisphere!

Happy Autumnal Equinox to anyone dialing in from the southern hemisphere!

And to anyone in, say, Ecuador or Equatorial Guinea (the latter of which, oddly enough, isn't actually on the equator — it's entirely north of it)... Happy another sweltering day of tropical heat!

Snickerdoodles aren't my favorite cookie, but I'd eat them anyday with a cup of coffee if only I could partake of them with you Uncle Swan! BTW, I'm making chocolate chip cookies later this evening and you're welcome to partake of them with us. A word or warning though; they don't last long in our house, so you'd better not hesitate.
