~ We need an ARK! ~ Lobster and Steak! ~

Good 42º rainy rainy morning.
Well, Friday the rain started and we got ¼" now it's

almost 1½" and it's still raining..

The weather map looks like the soaking is hitting No. Cal big time...

March 6 is the 65th day of the year (66th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 300 days remaining until the end of the year.

Yesterday I was putzing around the house and saw Shiloh outside. She 'escaped' again from Gerard and Maria. I called them and finally about 40 minutes later the came and got her. She is such a loving pooch. I tried to get a picture of her but she wouldn't sit still!!!

She just wants to be loved and the minute I bent down to take her picture she was up in my face. Funny. Wiggle wiggle wiggle!

1899Bayer registers aspirin as a trademark.
1964Nation of Islam's Elijah Muhammad officially gives boxing champion Cassius Clay the name Muhammad Ali.
   His life story is something else. Varied and convoluted. Refused to be drafted, convicted, reversal by Supreme Court on technical s*it, and given the Presidential Medal years later. 4 marriages, 7 children, some with women he just had affairs with. Stranger than fiction!

Yesterday Patty and Cliff's son, Chuck, and his wife Linda came up from Ft. Jones. They all wanted to go to dinner so we settled on Red Lobster. Ha! The wait as an hour. "Lobsterfest" I guess is the culprit. So we went to McGraths Seafood restaurant.

The celebratory 60 married years kids...

and 'Chuckles' and Linda...

You have to laugh, not only do Chuck and Cliff look alike, matching beards etc, but his mom's eyes... and Chuck and Cliff both ordered the exact same thing! Genes run deep!!!

Good dinner. Mine started with a glass of chard..  

then some clam chowder....  

and the piėce de résistance  was....

We were all stuffed as we waddled out the door. Everyone came back here for a nightcap and some more chatting.

I saved half of my steak and gave Maggie some all cut up. She loved it. Then this morning I cut up the rest and put it in her dish. She won't eat in the morning.... turned up her nose and went outside. In the meantime Mr. Harley ate every piece of that steak!
He's full and napping now!

Brian called late last night to say the birthday party for Sami and her friends wouldn't be taking place today... she and Tucker both had the stomach flu. Poor babies. I hope Jen and Brian escape getting it! Sigh....
All I know. Nuff said. Ciao.
