Glad I don't have to go anywhere later with these puffy eyes. And yes, I got the umbrella that turns purple when it rains. And earlier there really was a white bird flying over looked like a dove carrying something in its mouth looked like this emoji.

I want to give an early Happy Birthday shout out to @lennykravitz Lenny Kravitz whose birthday is this Saturday, May 26th. This photo was taken outside of the Legendary First Avenue that is featured in Purple Rain the movie.๐Ÿ’œ If you didn't know, Lenny used the moniker of Romeo Blue early in his music career. Prince & Lenny shared the stage on numerous occasions and can be seen together in the Rave u2 the Year 2000 video.

A few shots of the wall outside of First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. First Avenue is a downtown danceria that has been around since 1970. Paisley Park will forever be the home of Prince but First Avenue is where he truly came alive. He liked the venue because it didnโ€™t have seats, it didnโ€™t just book white rock โ€˜nโ€™ roll acts, and he could show up to play anytime he felt like it. To this day, First Avenue is one of Americaโ€™s most successful and long-lived independent rock clubs โญ๏ธ
