Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Blossoms And Blue Skies

Well, sort of.
    Today, it's bright blue with a wisp of white clouds. The fringe of gray and black over the mountains reminds that the next storm is on its way.  No matter -- we really need the moisture. 
     The flowers in Denver have been out for a few weeks. Ours are just beginning to pop. The crabapple by the deck is wreathed in rosy pink, and hyacinths have joined the earlybird daffodils.
     Gee, this is a pretty time of year.

Scamming the scammers.  (From Quora)  One gem:
     "Another time, I kept interrupting and telling the telemarketer to speak up, because I couldn’t hear him. This went on until he was nearly hoarse from yelling into the phone. Then I stopped him and told him I would never buy anything from someone who was yelling at me over the phone and hung up on him."
     !!!!!
