Here are some springtime odds and ends:
In Amherst recently I stumbled upon this unusual bumpersticker promoting the notion that the Democrats should nominate a ticket consisting of Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia candidate for governor.
That ain't goin' nowhere. Meanwhile, a mob of Mayors were seen at the Delaney House last month doing a selfie with TV dude Dave Madsen.
How many Mayors can you name?
Here's a hint, one of them is in the picture below taken at the Northampton Bike Day celebration.
Because it had to move across the street because of renovations at the courthouse, Bike Day was a bit of a dud this year.
Meanwhile, early one morning at the UMass pond I came upon a mother duck sleeping by her ducklings.
A little further on I came upon a crane, but it burst into flight just as I touched the shutter.
Yesterday morning I listened to the the John F. Kennedy Middle School Jazz Band performing in Pulaski Park in Northampton. According to the their website, the JFK Jazz Band is "for 7th and 8th grade band students who play saxophone, trumpet, trombone, guitar, bass, piano and drum set that are looking for a new challenge and are interested in playing jazz and some pop music." As you can hear below, there is considerable talent in that band.
