Preferred Prognosis

L.G., the longer serving of the two endlessly quaint receptionists at the eye doctor's shop, told me today that according to the Farmer's Almanac, as reported on the news, the winter is not through with us yet, and we will have one more heavy snowstorm later this month.

However, I much prefer to go by the predictions of the Wishful Thinking Almanac, as written by me (and published mentally) and generally a more reliable source, and it says not so, and that instead the current clear sledding into another great spring will keep on going without any interruption.

After all, the brightly green daffodil shoots are six or seven inches tall, the forsythia is not far from doing its thing, and other birds are joining the crows.in the woodland chorus.
