May Day Report

My part of the world has been enjoying a wonderful run of perfect weather these past 5 or 6 days.  The weather folks insist it will continue for the next 5 or 6 at the least.  If I had to pick the best day of the bunch so far it would have to be yesterday, May 1st, 2013.

Cool enough for long sleeves at 6, warm enough for tee shirts by 7.  The Sun came up hard and fast and in my face.  It was as if the Sun wanted everyone in my part of this planet to know it was back and still had an attitude.

Yesterday, May 1st, was also my father's birthday.  Had he lived this long he would be 108.  Damn.  He punched his time clock back in 1980.  Had 75 years on his terms and made no excuses. 

The image above was taken yesterday about 9:00 AM.  The ancient Weeping Cherry tree in my dooryard proved once again it had what it took to add beauty to my world.  And look at that sky.  What a beautiful morning.
