End of February, what do you write about? Weather, OK, it changes from the time you go into work and the time you come out. Insects and trees and flowers are totally confused, too. Do we bloom or come out or do we hide?

Valentine's Day is over, spring is not here yet and February only has 28 days to mess up. Have you ever noticed that except for Leap Year, February and March's days are the same? That the second of February falls on the same day of the week that the second of March falls on?

Children have been back to school from Christmas vacation and have a while to go until spring break. If you go to Tuloso-Midway or Robstown you get a break in between, but if you go to Calallen you don't get off until March 15. I know my grandkids are ready to miss school legitimately. I'm pretty sure the teachers are ready for a small break, too.

At least the sun is staying up past the time I get off of work. I hate coming home and no sunshine and I can't bring myself to get up any earlier than I do, because the sun's not up yet.

What does this all mean? It means I want to go on vacation somewhere and kick back and relax. It means I don't want to drag my grandkids out of bed every morning to go to school. It means I'm READY for spring and longer days and warmer weather.

I'm going to be teaching a basic sign language class for adults beginning March 23 at 7 p.m. This class is free and open to any adult. There is a registration list, so call or come in if you would like to sign up for the class.

My Tuesday night p.j. storytime needs some new people coming to join us. This storytime is for all ages and we have lots of fun. If you haven't made any plans for Tuesday nights please come enjoy the storytime at 7 p.m.

We are slowly getting enough donations to start building the structure we need to display the mammoth bones in the children's area. If you haven't been by to see the bones and molars it's very interesting to see something that used to roam around in this area.

Yes, we had mammoths and saber-toothed cats and glyptodons roaming around in this area. Just think if you had lived 13,000 years ago you would be eating mammoth burgers instead of hamburgers.

Come check out your local library and see all the fun things we have.
