So I tried to remove some of the dried caulk along the brick and window.
What a pain in the butt....... the brick mortar comes off easier.....
Now I see why some of you are recommending a heat gun.
I guess I will be purchasing more tools, haha.....

So on that corner brick that I thought was short, it actually broke.
You can see old (original caulk) still on it.
Not sure when it broke.

Ok, done, 10 more windows to go. A few pics after the old caulk is gone, then the finished product. It's not perfect, but better than it was.
I used big stretch caulk and some backer rod.
