"Springtime, love time, May"

Do you remember that Romberg song from the Broadway musical, "Maytime?" It always comes to mind when I see this photo. Actually, I'm pretty sure this was taken in March or early April, and I don't feel like going into my files to check - so imagine some blossoms and let it be May!

I am breathing a sigh of relief tonight - I am adding on-line shopping to my store, and have had a terrible time trying to figure out how to do it - I really don't understand that whole computer-speak language - "domain, hosts, gateway, shopping cart, etc..." My kids (and even my grandchildren) do, but, my gosh, they are busier than I am! And I need to understand it all anyway. Out of the blue this morning a very nice young man came into the store to look around, and it turns out, he is an account manager for a local company that does the whole thing at very reasonable prices....I checked it out, and they are a good company. So, I don't have to figure it out - they'll get it set up and show me how it works.....yay!

You sound much like me when it comes to this high tech, "Get Smart" gadgets. I was thrilled with myself yesterday when I was able to activate my new cellphone and download my phonebook into it. I did it all by myself. (Ok, so it took me several hours!)

Beautiful bluebirds. I envy that you see so many of them. I love May, too. Flowers, baby critters, and finally warmth after a long winter.
