Itís May 4. This means three things to me. First, itís my motherís birthday. Happy birthday Mom. I should order some flowers and make a phone call, if not a visit. Second, my license tags on my car are due. Several years ago I bought a car on my motherís birthday and my license tags get renewed on her birthday instead of mine. Finally, it means that the danger of snow and frost has finally passed. For as long as I can remember, it has never been safe to assume that the cold weather is finished until after May 4.
