With temperatures in the mid-fifties on Monday afternoon,
residents of my neighborhood took the opportunity to play outside.
A pick-up basketball game in the driveway of a nearby
home occupied the energies of a group of teen-age boys, while
a little boy left his bicycle to go join his big brother
in a game of softball.
The respite from colder temperatures was short-lived, though.
Before I got home later in the afternoon, the wind had picked up,
bringing with it cold rain showers that brought my little
spring fantasy to a halt.
This yard ornament on the porch of a Speedway home,
brought a smile to my face. Costumed geese were rampant
some years back and, although they've since become a little outre'
I enjoy the damn things and applaud the people who
maintain their geese in appropriate holiday gear.
Although Valentine's Day passed without a nibble,
I still hold out hope, even if it is a goose in a red dress.
Anyway ... be mine?
