Winter is not Gone Yet

Well the snow this morning caused Detroit to go over the record for seasonal snow.  Now that the record is broken, here is hoping we are done with this winter.  We finally got Mindy used to going to the bathroom on grass (she kept looking for snow). It isn't just the snow, tonight is going down to 24 degrees.  We are going to a Master Gardener meeting tonight at Telly's greenhouse.  The topic is spring flowers.

Lion Convention

Last weekend was the Lions District A2 Convention in Grand Rapids.  We decided to take Mindy with us.  She was pretty good.  She didn't bark at all and stayed under the table during meals and meetings.  Walking through a crowd is still very difficult for Mindy as she feels it is necessary to personally greet anyone she sees. The convention was very informative.  I especially enjoyed the business meeting.  That was where all the charities reported how they were doing and the number of people served. It really made you feel good about being a Lion.  At the banquet Saturday night I carried the banner in for the Lathrup Village Lions Club.
