Good 44º clear sunny morning. Yesterday we topped at 92º. Going to be that or warmer today.
Yesterday I had a note on FB asking if I had gotten my gift. I replied, "gift?". Well, as it turns out my friend, Gary The Birdhouse Guy (also teased by Jerry as "Gary My Love") left a birthday present sitting atop my trash can down by the road!
