Full Moon ~ Vernal Equinox ~ Colorful Fish ~ Fried Ravioli

Good 37ยบ pressure dropping morning.
If I could have seen the moon last night it would have looked like this.... 
 But alas, too many clouds... Although yesterday was beautiful for 12 or 6 minutes....
Maggie and I took a golf cart ride to Dave and Pats to water (indoor plants) and feed the fish. They have this sign by their
gate ...
 I think they need another one on the front side of the tree saying "Way" ! So, Dave's fish are in this giant tub...
Hard to get pictures of them so I played with PhotoShop...
this first one is natural...

Ok, so then we came home and it started raining. The
turkeys were down under the Madrone tree showing
off for the girls....
And there is still a tiny bit of snow up on my mountain..
Mr. Twohee and his pal were enjoying a snack...
