celebrated in Springfield
making this address.
2. The flowers in my yard are happily blossoming ... and there's even an Iris bud beginning to show it's purple colors. Methinks we're going to have Spring here in Southern California before we experience winter.

Interestingly the current draft overall seems very much like in size & balance to what he sent to the Hill originally though some of the 'specifics' have been altered along the way. No matter what side of the political aisle you're on ... doing this in less than a month is pretty amazing.
5. The weather over the weekend should bring us continued rain showers ... and that's a good thing for us in Southern California.
