Was just sitting in my big chair and thought to myself what “Spring” really is to us all. To me the best word for spring is “dirt”. Here in our little farming community we all look forward to the ground in the spring. The farmers cultivate the ground for their crops to be put in, the women dig the dirt for their gardens and some are digging the dirt so they can plant all the pretty plants and bushes that will make everything so pretty next summer and fall. Isn’t the word “dirt” pretty and so is the word “spring”. Everything that can “springs” up out of the ground means summer is just around the corner, even our clocks “spring” ahead.

How to be Miserable
Think about yourself. Talk about yourself. Use “I” as much as possible. Mirror yourself continually in the opinion of others. Listen greedily to what people say about you. Expect to be appreciated. Be on the lookout for a good time for yourself. Shirk your duties if you can. Do as little as possible for others. Love yourself supremely. Be selfish. This recipe is guaranteed to be infallible one hundred percent.

• Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet, eating her curds and whey, along came a spider, and sat down beside her, and said “Move over”.
