Slight signs

Spring teases us in batches, but in fact, extended strings of cooler nights are pleasant. We've been doing some urban hiking, complete with daypacks full of extra layers and umbrellas, just in case; we seem to be holding up all right.
Had our last marching rehearsal, in full dress; the evening grew dimmer and increasingly humid, but didn't break into rain until we were finished and away. Parade season is nigh.
Started reading a writer new to me, Patrick Leigh Fermor, known as "Paddy" to his friends, who just died at age 96. He wrote about an astounding journey he made at age 18, starting in 1933 and ending four years later, during which he walked from Holland to Constantinople. More on this amazing person later...
