“We fool ourselves so much we could do it for a living.” --------Stephen King This is a YUGE day! It's April Fool's Day, Good Friday Eve AND Thirsty Thursday. It's very likely a dozen or more other holidays, too, that I can't even remember because I'm going to be 30 in only 3 years and you know what old age does to an otherwise good memory. I've seen one good prank so far today. When I got up this morning, it was 25 degrees (That's -4 Centipedes and morning I believe is early afternoon on the Metric clock). So Mother Nature is on the board with one great joke. A mid-February day in April. I don't know if that one can be topped but the day is young and I'm on the lookout for something better.

I was hoping to wake up to find that this whole pandemic thing was a long, sick prank - but oh well, guess not. You are having mid-Feb while we are more like June (almost 90 now).

I love California. I wish I was there now. 90 degrees sounds really good.

@xander6464 Believe it or not, the skies got gray in the past half hour. I don't know what's going on . . . I thought the entire day would be sunny. Maybe we are getting a head start on the cool down. Well it's still warm out anyway - I cannot complain.

@much2say A few clouds don't matter as long as it stays warm. Is there any chance of rain?

I've never been good at pranking peeps ....... lucky for me I've likewise never been pranked. Mother Nature has a way of pranking us by giving us beautiful weather for a while then BAM, it's back to the bad. OLD????? I'd love to be 30 again and know what I know now.

Mother Nature does seem to be the best joker. That would be good, to be any age you want and retrain everything you know.

Yeah, she really is. I don't know about retraining but I sure wouldn't mind learning new things and having the physical ability to do what it requires, age tends to limit us in as far as physical abilities are concerned.

@rebelann That's the big thing. If you could be, say the same as you were when you were 25, physically, it wouldn't be bad to live to be 200 or more.

Are you back to normal now? It's been the high 70s here (81 was our high today which is 27 C) which is a little warm but not crazy.

@arthurchappell I have a feeling it might go haywire here again, too. I'm reading about snow in Ireland...something seems off.

Because you're young at heart. And that's what counts.

@vandana7 That's exactly what I meant. And it was a good move on your part. Young hearts are much cheaper.
