Not too bad Karen- 84f that day. With windows down and sunroof open, I was singing "The birds in the sky will be sad and lonely if you don't come back to meeee" at near karaoke

Prince and I were the same age. He was just 2 months older.
I never thought I would see this happen.

It looks like your Agave will be blooming in a couple of years.

Yes, it's really sad about Prince! :>( I saw him in concert in 1984 at the Cow Palace in San Francisco.

Time is advancing...The Bee Gee's down to one. Donna Summers is gone,now its the 80's pop stars.
Its getting to where I have to pinch myself I'm still here. Or post-wink.

Unfortunately, the clock only goes one way! I wish I could turn back the clock 10 years! LOL!

Andy- has it been cool down there? We had a brief warm wave,then back to cloudy and cool. I think El Nino is going to make for a cool May and force us to wait until June for real warm every day.

Actually, the weather has been warmer than normal (for many months). It's suppose to cool down over the next 3 or 4 days with possible showers (which we need to badly).

Next week warm to hot weather suppose to return.
