Open Letter To Tam: First Robin

Dear Tam:

A few minutes ago I looked out the back door and saw a robin up in our crab apple tree in the back yard. Harbinger of Spring! Unfortunately he flew away before I could take his picture.

Nothing lost, though, as he was one sorry-looking sonofabitch.

I must admit that the robins have been puzzling me.

I'd be sitting on the front porch reading the week before Christmas, and there would be robins in the yard, and I'd be thinking "Aren't y'all supposed to be off south someplace?"
