Not many photos from my short walk at Oak Point Monday due to the high winds. The prickly pear cactus in the parking lot was blooming but seemed stressed by either hail damage or insect pests.
My dad would have turned 93 yesterday. He would have smiled at the belly button on this prickly pear and said, "Cheese." It takes a long time to get back past the scars, decay, and spikes to the green, soft, astute, funny father.
