They live to around 150 years but don't get their first side 'arm' until they are around 75 years.

Right now it's about 74F (23C) and I have the windows open! :D It's very blustery and there are thunderstorms coming and a tornado watch in affect - but I have the windows open! :D

I'm going to hazard a guess here, and say that Suzanne has got the windows open. ;)

We didn't have that great a weather on the hol, with overcast skies and heavy showers until the last day and, of course, the journey home. Now that I'm back home, it's bright sunshine, warm(ish), and almost cloudless. :roll: :lol:

Dull, windy and cold here. Gave in and lit the fire as I'm not going anywhere today. Had planned all day doing my own garden but not yet :(

Glorious weekend.

Nope, not that bad Sharlene, thank goodness! It's not going to be much warmer than yesterday, but at least it's sunny and there shouldn't be any more snow. :roll:
