|Seems a strange photo to put on the RSPB website, but there you are.|
I looked on the internet for any evidence of his statement, but 'Blue Mondays' appear to be in January in the US and all I could find for Britain was some folklore that seems to be the British version of Groundhog Day (a tradition I've never given any attention).
I can't tell what this month is predicting - it's been both confusingly mild and bitterly cold! Just another example of how perverse British weather can be, as well as a reminder of why I've always ignored Groundhog day. I suppose the fact that over time people have looked for evidence of the end of winter in February is a universal indication that by now we're ready to be done with it. I know I am.
As I consider various volunteer opportunities I've been passing ideas on to Terry if they seem suitable. His situation reminds me that if retirement may be challenging for a couple, being retired and single might be a lot worse. My search for a suitable photo to dress up this post led me to discover Aselin Debison. Watching this video convinced me that it's easier to be happy in pretty weather.
Are you ready for winter to end?
