No surprises, please

The Rondout
This post reads better if you're listening to this.

The snow is melting, which is a beautiful sign of things to come, and that could be the upcoming St. Patrick's Parade in the city of Kingston or toads breeding at Black Creek Preserve or people wearing shorts when it's still a bit too cold outside or all the horrible things that were under the snow. 

Life is full of surprises.

Other surprises:
Time magazine has a proud history of giving people horns. 
Weird things spill out of trucks.
People are throwing pizza on Walter White's roof. 

I just can't.



***
The Four (surprises):
$118,000 check for damage to a school bus worth just $8,500.
* "Did the city lose the funds because "someone" was commenting on bike trails in the paper instead of doing his work?" Ouch.
* Today I Learned: A bunch of Kingston High School students who live near the school are late to school, a lot.
* If you've ever wonder how ZZ Top, which is performing at UPAC in Kingston on Friday, came up with "Legs," this is how.

One cat: He's got legs, and he knows how to use them.



Yesterday's Internet, Today! has been around for three months! Yay! If you subscribe, you get it via email. And what you'd get is a Google Glass photo with a little story, linkage from the day before, four Daily Freeman trending stories (at the time of writing this) and a cat.
