I’ve been on the job for more than 21 years, without a day off for longevity, illness, endurance or good behavior. I’m not complaining. I wouldn’t want a day off. Not a whole day, anyway.

The amazing April of 2013 is over, but not forgotten. Statistics from such a record-setting 30 days will last for years and continue to remind us of the month that gave us more snow (50.8 inches) than had fallen in the previous entire winter of 2011-12 (49.1 inches).
It was a party 14 years in the making. Attendees included nine moms who met when our kids were in preschool. Now, we came together to anticipate and celebrate those same preschoolers’ high school graduations.
I suddenly saw something whiz past out the corner of my eye. I wheeled in that direction and much to my surprise, I spotted a butterfly. A butterfly – only one day after the snow had fallen so thickly we could hardly navigate!
Imagine this scenario: You are recovering from a cold or the flu when a hacking cough develops. You think perhaps you have acute bronchitis, but then wonder whether it may be pneumonia.
