~ SNOW ! ~ Pie-Shaped Buildings ~ Beer! ~

Good 31ยบ morning. PJ.... tell Dave, "Wake up wake up! You old sayer of nays.... it SNOWED!"

Yes, snow. April and it snowed! The prophecy of the television weather people has come to pass. Whodda thought! Sometimes they are actually correct in their prognostications.

^Mr. Hippo has snow on him!

^Snow on the tulips.

^On the artichoke plants.

^On Mr. Frog.

Yesterday was the Law Enforcement Fire Luncheon. Had a nice chat with the "fellas".... Bob, Billy, Dale, Roy, and Jon. Small group this month. Only 3 tables of LAPD and various and the 5 of us LASD with Jon being from Semi Valley PD. Bob, Billy, and Dale brought their pooches. They stayed in their cars. Bob's little Baron is a Brittany Spaniel. Cute! Dale's black lab is Sami. And Billy's chocolate lab is Chaka. I got lots of doggie kisses and when I got home Maggie had to sniff to see "who" I had been with!

I know this is weird, but when I got my hair cut recently I saw Leah sweeping up the hair and took a picture...

The cuttings from 4 of her customers.

You may have heard of the Flatiron Building in New York...

... and the Phelan Building in San Francisco...

Not to be outdone, in Grants Pass we also have a pie shaped building...

I was stuck in some traffic so I took this picture. Interesting why they would build a structure shaped like this. Then I Googled structures and found this site...
Fascinating some of the weird and strange structures that have been built.

Ok, nuff said. Happy Thursday. Get up Dave, it snowed! LOL
