My mother always made a notation on her calendar when she spotted the first robin of the year. For me in 2011, that was yesterday afternoon at 5 pm. And...it was in the low 60s yesterday. And...the pollen from the cedar trees is starting to float in the air. I think spring must be around the corner!
In other news, the Ocracoke Methodist Church is sponsoring a Roast Pork Dinner tomorrow, February 20, at 12:15, right after church. In addition to the roast pork, there will be potatoes, green beans, rolls, and a beverage. Don't be late! For the last fundraising dinner David arrived right at 12:15 and got the last two plates!
