Larry

I feel like anybody that knows me really well knows that at heart, I am a Cali guy. I'm like California through and through. I spent almost my entire life with the exception of four years when I lived in the Sierra mountains in California, which means I'm soft, which means I don't really understand winter. It's mostly 75 degrees and sunny for my entire existence. But the quick time that I was in Reno, I realized it was sunny outside, but it was still cold. I had to layer up but I was like, Oh, cool. So I don't understand spring, like the rest of the world. That's because springs a big deal because it's cold. And you finally don't have to put a jacket on brings us to our quote today from Robin Williams spring is nature's way of saying, Let's party. Does it get cold? It gets cold in Colorado. So you understand the idea of spring coming being good thing, but not necessarily in Texas, right? Oh,


Andrew Keller

it gets cold in Texas, too. I mean, I want to comment on the quota. I like it. But I think it's spring is nature's one of nature's way of saying let's party. I mean, the first thing I thought of was like a waterfall. I feel like a waterfall. So it's party more than screen. But yeah, and Colorado's a weird thing. Because in April, I remember I remember very specifically one time, it was like I could play golf in Boulder or I could go skiing in Breckenridge and it would be snowing. And it's like, once you crossed over the through the Eisenhower Tunnel, it could be either side. So Colorado is kind of a weird thing where it was sunny all the time, but not necessarily warm. But like my brother went to school in Indiana, and he said the sun would go away and like October and you wouldn't see it again till May. And I think that's the way that this is coming to that. You're just like, grim. And finally it comes out. And maybe this is it saying the sun is a way to enjoy life and not having the sun is Isn't that great?


Larry

Well, I mean, my point of saying all that was that I'm really not qualified to say spring is nature's way of parting because I feel like every day is kind of spring because I'm soft. But if you lived in Alaska, where it was miserable for a long time, you'd be like, Oh, it's finally spring. It's letting up. I get a rage. By the way, just to double down on your thing in Southern California. We grew up saying you could surf and go skiing all in the same day.


Andrew Keller

Yeah, Southern California does not. I mean, people say that I live in LA and that is not the case, driving five and a half hours to go skiing is not is not a day trip, in my opinion. Also, Robin Williams said it not you.


Larry

Okay, so here's the other thing about spring, which the reason I brought this up today is that I feel like we've all gotten a taste of what it's like to live in Alaska, in that there's like some light at the end of the tunnel. It's been a very heavy year. And this spring, in particular, you can see signs of, oh, we're coming back to life again, we're going to be able people are getting vaccinated, we're going to be able to maybe go on a trip, we're going to be able to maybe eat out with their friends, maybe we're going to see our parents again. So I feel like this is a spring that we can all relate to of someone who's now coming through a dark winter.


Andrew Keller

So you're saying it's a metaphor to the times that we're living in? It's both my Yeah, I think it's, it is an apt metaphor. We we did not want to make dinner last night we walked down the street to this Mexican restaurant that is by our house that we've gotten takeout from over the past year. And they were like, oh, let's sit outside because they opened outdoor dining a week or two ago. And we said can we get a table and its doors inside or outside? Oh, we ate inside because we hadn't been able to do that in a long time. And that used to not be a fun treat. But LA is loosening up baby.


Larry

I got to see my mom for the first time 300 more than a year and a half. She got on a plane she was able to fly. She's got a vaccine. I feel like and I feel like that's going to happen all over the country, people are going to start seeing people. They haven't seen it a longer time. So kind of hits the metaphor of spring. The other thing that I mean, once again, soft Southern California spring is not that big a deal because it's always 75 and sunny. But the thing for me as a kid that I remember about spring was daylight saving time and it stayed light longer and I was able to play sports and be out and be on my bike longer during the day. Yeah, I


Andrew Keller

mean, I do love this metaphor, but moving more towards like humans enjoyment of sunlight, like countries really far north and I guess really far south but like Sweden. I've been to Sweden in the winter when you get an hour. and a half have like a little bit of light, like lighting is very important to them. And lighting design is really important. And just remembering that natural light can go a really long way and into your happiness.


Larry

Also, Spring has spring break, which was always a big deal as you're if you're a kid you like, Oh, you get a whole week off. Right middle. And also spring break is a big four coming of it. Oh, summer break is on the way, we just have to get through the rest of this spring school schedule. Yeah, and you guys just moved that you do a little spring cleaning spring, you know, that's something that you know, you hear that? I've never my family is not a spring spring cleaning.


Andrew Keller

Crew, I'm guessing that came about because you would have your winter gear and you'd be switching it out. And you're like, Alright, well, now that I'm putting this away, whatever we didn't use, we need to throw away or give away. And when we take the the summer gear out, we need to go through it.


Larry

You know, another thing that once again, is it really happened in Southern California, but I think happens for the rest of the world. If you want to start a garden, if you're serious about it. Spring is when you you plant your stuff, because in Southern California, you could do it all the time. But once again, if winter snows gone now you plant


Andrew Keller

Yeah, I mean, it's a metaphor and a metaphor for new beginnings. Now's the time to now's the time to be able to start something different. Like if you like I'm gonna do something during the pandemic, and you didn't do it like now I'm gonna do it.


Larry

But I keep saying this. But do you think it's more of a big deal? In a place where they experience a real winner? Do they really say like, oh, it is time for a new It is time to plant a garden. It is time to change your mindset. It is time to put away the jackets.


Andrew Keller

I don't know like if you live in Minneapolis, I'm not sure like if you're living in urban lifestyle, because every all the comforts of life come to you. You go to like the grocery stores are going to have produce year round. I think if you live more rural is probably going to be a bigger deal. But like to that point, if you withhold something for a long time, are you going to appreciate it more like a lot of people do lint we're actually lint is ending. Or actually as this airs Lent is over, people give up stuff and they're like they indulgent I remember my grandfather used to give up ice cream every year for Lent. And he would stay up till midnight on Saturday and eat a gallon of ice cream. So it's like, if you withhold the sun from people, are they gonna appreciate it more? And I think yes.


Larry

And I feel like Lynn is sort of the same thing as seasons. It kind of gives you a perspective of where you are in the year. But like, I hate to belabor this point in Southern California, it's Groundhog's Day, you don't necessarily it's like the days are almost all the same, as opposed to like lip, oh, I'm not going to eat ice cream for 30 days. And then you know, he kind of gets get a different section of what a year is.


Andrew Keller

You don't have to answer this if you don't want to. But what is there going to be a point in life where you're going to go back to hugging people or human touch because I think that like human interaction like physical touch is a big deal. And so like next time I hug someone, am I going to hold them a little bit longer? I'm going to if they're open to hugging me, but or have you thought about that? Yeah,


Larry

sorry. Sorry, really kind of started. My sister had her vaccine a couple of weeks ago so we can hug again. My mom's had a vaccine like I said she visit for the first time So yeah, I mean, it's I feel like it's already started in by the way. I mean, I don't know. I was never really completely anti hug to begin with. Like if you just turn your head away kind of one side hug. There was a way to kind of do it even in the COVID.


Unknown Speaker

So yeah,


Larry

I never gave it up. This is what I'm saying it I never gave up pugs. Okay,
