Sunday afternoon.  5:10 p.m.  40 degrees.  Feels like 31.  I'm inside looking out…at the patio.  For this So Cal boy…hardly an acceptable way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  On the bright side, Debbie's jammin' shrimp gumbeaux is simmering.  There's a loaf of sourdough bread ready to go in the oven.  Moral of the story?  Even in exile there's a bright side!  Wish you were here…unless where you are is warmer.
