Good 46º foggy raining morning.
Yesterday was supposed to be sunny and in the 70ºs, but we stayed cloudy and only in the 60ºs. We topped at 69º.
Yesterday Brian came over and weed-eated and mowed for me. THANK YOU BRI!!!
After Brian had mowed, Dude was happy laying in the grass! Been awhile.
And speaking of Dude.... On this day in 2013 Dude came to live with me. He was 6 years old and born in 2007. That was the year Jerry died and I know Jerry is reincarnated in Dude, as Dude snores just like Jerry did!!!
Picture of the Day ... tree island!

Today is Palm Sunday....
Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in each of the four canonical Gospels.
In most liturgical churches Palm Sunday is celebrated by the blessing and distribution of palm branches or the branches of other native trees representing the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Christ as he rode into Jerusalem. The difficulty of procuring palms in unfavorable climates led to their substitution with branches of native trees, including box, olive, willow, and yew. The Sunday was often named after these substitute trees, as in Yew Sunday, or by the general term Branch Sunday.
All I know. Nuff said. Have a nice Palm Sunday. Ciao.
