Overheard in an Italian restaurant:  "I saw that movie about that guy? on the motorcycle?   Che? And all those people who were really poor?  I almost felt guilty, but then I didn't."

Spring came early that year


Temps in the 90s in January was scary--what could July or August be like?--but the 60s in March, after some good soaking raid, is delightful. I set up the front yard years ago, and now I give it tune-ups like dividing the lavender, trying to keep the narcissi from taking over, and adding some geranium shrubs.  Wonderful water.
