Although this post is a day off, Imma asked me to take a break from Beach Walk Reflections and pitch in with some random thoughts about the ongoing month and the new one. Thanks to Marc for the space.
February delivered a Super Bowl champion, a re-retirement of a football legend, Grammy & BAFTA Awards, a devastating earthquake in Turkey & Syria, the transition into year two of Russia-Ukraine, the Chinese balloon saga, continuing storms in California, more George Santos, and politicians saying stupid shit.
February deaths included A Christmas Story mother, a Spanish fashion designer & perfumer, a composer/arranger of pop songs, a pioneer of audiobooks, the one wearing a bikini in One Million Years B.C., Detective Munch, and people dying from gun violence, natural disasters, and war.
I have no idea why my WP Spam folder contains so many comments regarding RVs, camping trailers, and campers. Don’t forget to check your Spam folder.
In case you missed it, here are a few February headline gems from The Onion:

To take you into March, here’s an old song that I didn’t know until last month. Yesterday was Pig Day, so I hope you didn’t miss celebrating. Meanwhile, Happy Dr. Seuss Day! I’m out of here.
