am hoping to see all the Plaza art works as the weather will be good this week.

The Plaza businesses had windows broken but they are not mad, they want a justice city and beautiful art. They are enlightened people looking out for the goodness in everybody.

I hope every body saw all the wildflowers are blooming. They are many different colors and they all get along.
