Farewell to Joan.

 My aunt, Joan Louise Chaney Long (March 5.1934 - March 24, 2015) was a strong, opinionated, difficult, loving presence in my life. She was a second mother, a friend, a political adversary, and a playmate. I never doubted her love.  I will miss her!

She had a library of expressions that she loved to use to shock or surprise. "I'm going to raise hell and put a prop under it," was a common one. "I buy you books and buy you books and all you do is eat the covers" another.

Where is that coy wench, Spring?

It's comin' on April, and we still have snow and ice on the ground. It was 21 degrees at 9:00 am.

Spring?  I don't think so!
