Happily Landed

My niece was sitting on the living room floor the other day, playing some Pokemanish card game.

I haven't figured out this newfangled way to waste pass the time, but isn't it all just glorified War? How exciting was a good double war? And every now and then you'd turn up matching cards for a TRIPLE WAR?!? And on that triple war, how your heart would sink into your stomach when you turned over a deuce. So.Very.Sad.

Anyway, she looked up at me and said, without irony, "Uncle Bobby, is it spring yet in your land?"

My land. She so makes me smile. And the reports that its going to be 60 degrees here in "my land" by the end of the week makes me smile as well.
