Harold, do you remember what nursery in JT you bought it from? By chance was it the The Tourist Trap? I talked with a cactus expert at Arizona Cactus, and he believes it to be a Manfreda maculosa (AKA Agave maculosa) or Manfreda longiflora. There are many, many hybrids between the two, so it can be a combo of the two, no way to positively tell. Luckily unlike Agaves, the two above do not die after the flower, so it should be around for many years to come. Can you get a close-up of the leaves at the base?
