We have had a few nice sunny days so we could get some outside work done. Spring is definitely on the way. Sunday was Palm Sunday. There is an old saying, “If you get your palm in dry, you will get your hay in dry.” It wasn’t raining or snowing on Sunday, so we got the palm home without getting rained on. All the farmers should be happy about that! Happy Easter to everyone, especially Gramma Rosie Rose.
