Just around the corner Lady Spring is waiting expectantly until the time comes for her to shower the winter-ridden earth with her many blessings. In past years "little Johny" would be taken by the nose and the time honored spring tonic, sulfur and molasses, would be administered to him "just to tone up his system." The beauties of spring always became somewhat dulled to Johnny about this time.
