Gives me hope that spring actually will arrive.

Even though sometimes we still have snow on the ground on Opening Day, it’s all good.

Charlie Brown’s baseball hero is Joe Shlabotnik. He wants Joe’s bubble gum card in the worst way. Thwarted.

I posted this some months ago on Facebook.

I was going to pick my brother up and go to the Twins game. But when I got there – I was a half-hour late.

My brother was sore. “What the…?!” he fumed. “What took you so long?”

“It was the most amazing thing,” I replied. “I was online, on a singles’ site, chatting with a woman who wanted to meet a guy.

I logged off, and as I put on my jacket Santa Claus popped down the chimney to ask if I was being a good boy.

On my way out to the garage, a leprechaun stopped and asked if I had seen his pot of gold.

And when I opened my garage door, I couldn’t back the car out because there were three or four unicorns in the driveway.”

My brother snorted. “How gullible do you think I am?!” he snapped.

“There ARE no women on a singles’ site who want to meet a guy!”
