Clump #163: Clear pile of bank-related paperwork.
One more pile given the drill of shred, recycle, or file. I’m beginning to think this will be a lost art not too long from now, when we’ll handle every transaction online. Remember when we all received copies of cancelled checks?

Newsflash: Spring was in the air and on the front doors of Strasburg today, inspiring the color yellow as the pigment for this post. Even the Easter Bunny came out to play.

And an accompanying song for the color, “Here Comes The Sun,” by the Beatles. No truer words:
Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say … it’s all right
