This past long weekend I decided to gather up my dog Lola and get out of town. We headed along El Camino Real to beautiful Santa Barbara to visit the "Queen of the Missions" and my twin sister, Elaine, along with her husband, Larry. The warm Santa Ana winds that had been blowing in our valley followed me to this picturesque coastal city. A special treat for us was our daily walk along the breakwater by the harbor. Each day we were warmed by hotter than usual breezes. Oh, how I love the smell of the sea. I often wonder why I live so far away from the ocean.

The first weekend of spring just whizzed by. With the heavy early morning cloud cover, the weather people commented that we were experiencing either June gloom or May gray. Absolutely nobody mentioned April showers. Our parched earth would have welcomed that forecast. Yes, water conservation is ever present in my mind. I have reluctantly given up my long hot showers - I'm singing short songs these days. --- The spring social season is in full swing and love is also in the air. The Valley Sun got a note from Debbie Bacino saying that she will be married in April.
