I saw 40 robins today. Does that mean it's Spring yet?
Or do robins not posess groundhog-like powers?

They were all parked under one of my neighbor's trees, eating little orange berries off the ground. I thought "That must be some good $%!+" but it was too cold to get out of the car and check.

1. No,
that just means that there's still love in the world.

4. I think a metaphorical one
would be preferable to the actual one awaiting us in decades to come.

Cheerio!

3. Well, officially spring arrives later this month......
March 21st or so, IIRC.....

So these guys might be the early harbingers of Spring!

I don't know, though, for sure.....
