I want to know more about this succulent…
I would like to know more about the plant in the attached pix. I'm assuming it's some kind of succulent. The leaves are fuzzy/furry. Its pink flowers last only half a day. They're already in bloom when I'm up around 7am, and die an hour or two after noon. Can you help me with any information about it?

I believe this is a Tradescantia sillamontana or a close relative. It is in the spiderwort family:
You can tell that the flowers look similar to those shown in the article, but the leaves are quite different. That's because unlike many in that family, the plant you have is a succulent as you've guesses. Therefore it needs less water and is very drought-tolerant.
