Mike’s Message for May

It’s Spring! I’m all excited about spring and summer. That’s when the little kid in me takes over. (To be honest, he doesn’t actually takeover. He never really left). I get to run around and play ball, go biking, swimming, camping, hiking, and all that other fun stuff that doesn’t work well when it’s cold out. And oh boy, do we have some great spring and summer fun planned! Now don’t let me spoil things for those of you who have sunk tons of money into an expensive, large screen, digital, hi-def TV entertainment system (or two). I fully realize that nothingcould possibly lure you out into the real world, where trees whisper, frogs croak, butterflies flutter, birds sing, and yes, the sun still shines. All you bona fide couch potatoes have a lifetimepermit (or is it a sentence)? To remain chained to your lounge chairs. I would not want to interfere with your hard-earned

loafing time dedicated to the boob tube. But as for me, I’m going to blow all my free time in the sun until my hair bleaches and my skin tans! Although there is no chance that you’ll even consider doing any of the foolish spring and summer events we have put together, at least you can enjoy a good laugh by checking out the silly things us nature boys (and girls!) will be upto. We’ll be camping and swimming, hiking at various local woodlands, biking the trails, picnicking, playing softball and tennis, and going on scenic train rides, just to name

a few. It probably makes you exhausted just reading about them. And just think how tired, hungry, blistered, sunburned, and miserable we’ll be when we get home. Boy are we dumb! Butwe can’t help it. It’s some kind of disease. Uh oh, I feel the summer itch coming on. I can’t sit still. It’s got a hold of me. Look out wild life, here I come!
