RE: re nursery interview/I'm back!

It was like our late February/early March weather! We're in the 80's by
April w/ no looking back. 90's in May. This 60's & 70's business on
Memorial Day AIN'T gettin' it. And the nights are cool up there
regardless. It doesn't cool down here at night much come May. But I love
that, not everyone does.
