Tweet and re-tweet

Today, for the first time this year, and on this freezing morning ...

I hear the chickadee!!

It is always a magical day when that happens. I am late this year. Last year I heard the chickadee in February. But better late than never, you know? I will have to get on Twitter and Tweet that I hear the chickadee. That is the most appropriate medium in which to announce this particular good news.

The chickadee sounds a little weak but it is there all the same. If it is a little demoralized I am in sympathy! I have had it with this cold weather. It is especially nasty downtown. The winds whip across the frozen lake and it goes right through you. Fighting my way into work the other day all I could think of was Tom Waits singing, "Colder than a well digger's a--."

 I hear you, chickadee.

I hear you!

There is a cardinal near my place in Williamsville that has been complaining about the cold for the last week. Poor guy!
