It has rained once since October. The plants are dying. No baby birds or animals. I wet down the dirt in my front yard in an attempt to stop the dust from coming in.

We are still a month off from the monsoon season. I'm hoping for lots of rain this summer.

I wish I had charming stories to tell but Byron wasn't working at Mexican Safeway and I left the store with detergent and scrubbing pads and orange-flavored chewable vitamins which leave a slight metallic taste in my mouth. Once when I was a kid, and we didn't have candy because we were poor, I climbed up on the counter and ate a couple of orange-flavored vitamins and felt real guilty afterwards. I was probably five-years-old, why that memory has stuck with me when so many others haven't is one of those great mysteries.
