My Mother's birthday was April 15th, she always said it was her birthday before it was Tax Day. She had the right's to the day first. Little known facts; in 1913, tax day was March 1st, then moved to March 15th in 1918, and moved to April 15, in 1955. I didn't know the history until I looked it up on Google recently.
Well, the weather powers must have felt sorry for me after last week's blog post about never-ending winter. Here are photos from this week.

This was the week we were supposed to pull Denali Rose out of the water for maintenance. We pushed it forward to April 30, because we thought the weather wouldn't cooperate with us. Who knew.....
Oh well, Bill has a cold, and needs to rest anyway. We haven't figured out he managed to catch one, we're always masked, we use hand sanitizer in the car after we have touched anything, use wipes on the grocery carts, and wash our hands upon returning home. Crazy. When folks come by Denali Rose to say "Hi", we tell them Bill is ill with a cold, and they scurry like ants running to honey.
I tried to find a funny cartoon with running ants, but I really don't like bugs, and even looking at cartoons made me woozy. This is one of the reasons I live in Alaska, no snakes, lizards, weird bugs, and I don't have any problem smashing mosquitoes.
Since spring has decided to take over, the bugs are starting to emerge again. We had a fly onboard the other day, it's time to find where I stowed the bug rackets last fall.
