Hello Everybody! Autumn the Puppy here!
Did you remember to set your clocks forward to start Daylight Saving Time today? Hope you weren't late to anything.
In the past, Daylight Saving Time used to be timed with the start of Spring, until the United States Congress decided to extend the event to hopefully conserve some electricity.
Now of course it's still a full week before Spring actually begins, at least as far as the calendar is concerned. Your guess is as good as mine in regards to when the weather will catch up with the calendar and we truly have Spring.
But despite my name, since that was the season I was born in, and my love for Winter, as long as it's decent enough to go outside and play; I love Spring. Guess I'm just a dog for all seasons.
Spring is terrific!
The flowers start to bloom. The trees begin to leaf, and trust me, being a dog, it's not fun going to a bare bathroom. The grass turns green. The birds and the bees return, and believe it or not, it's TRUE what people say about them. 
Over this past winter, I saw plenty of snowbirds, which makes me wonder why they all didn't fly south for the winter. I saw chickadees, tufted tit-mice, although I think they should lobby for a new name; goldfinches, house sparrows, but considering the cold temperatures we've had this past winter, I wonder why they didn't stay indoors; and a whole lot more. There was also blue jays and cardinals available for viewing over the winter months, but they all left my area in mid-February to warm up for baseball season.
Ah Spring...
Now if only the skies would turn from grey to blue.

Have a great week everybody and we'll be back next weekend for more Sunday Funnies! I think I'll let my stream of conscious thought go flow somewhere else right now.-AtP.
