5:52 p.m. 77°F.  The key today was that it rained.  Not honest-to-goodness Texas rain.  But it did rain.  Gave our backyard a nice dampening.  Gave everything that good smell.  Although they say, "it never rains in California"…it actually does.  Just not a whole lot.  We think it rained last during the first week of April.  So…it doesn’t have to rain a lot to be a major event here.  I know it was really nice.

Now the humidity has moved out.  It’s much cooler right now.  And really good to be out on the patio.  Got a little Dire Straits going.  Fountain gurgling in the background.  Mark’s jammin’ spaghetti later.   Good times.
