Whether you spell it April or Aprille, it certainly brings Spring to Michigan City.  The daffodils are blooming, the tulips have sprouted, the maple tree in the back yard is a-bud.  Until the seasonal allergies kick in, it sure is a beautiful time of the year!  

The birds are back, too.  We have plenty of grackles, and they cause me to wonder and watch for something.  If you look at them when they are flying, they turn their tail feathers to form a vertical rudder.  This is what I wonder:  Do all grackles turn their tails the same way?  Are there right-hand twisting birds as well as lefties?  I'm watching.
