Thursday Thinking and Inking - Mud

All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, March 18, 2010

Mud is us today!

Grab your yellow slicker, your Mackintosh or your spring raincoat. Pack that poncho or rain gear. Pick up those mud boots, hip waders or galoshes. Got waterproof garden gloves?

Are you ready for the spring weather? Watching meteorological reports of rain and warmer temperatures? Seeing ice and snow melt into sloppy muddy messes?

Who doesn’t love spring?

Spring is fun and filled with promise … as long as you have a good umbrella and appropriate footwear for spring weather.

Here’s today’s thought-provoking quotation for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

 “the world is mud-licious
and puddle-wonderful.”
American poet
(1894 – 1962)
