A hall tree doesn’t grow in the ground and you can’t exactly patch a leaky roof. Go on a nature walk looking for barn martin, and rock pink in the ripgut. Hey, you might see a jimplecute! If the ground is too wet, stick to the outer road, but don’t go on the slab.If you’re taking an important test, an eversharp is useful to have. Get a good night’s sleep so you aren’t ornery, and make sure to have at least one slapjack.
