24* !! Groan... ~ USPO New Vehicle ~ Skeeter the Silly

Good 24º morning. This freezing weather is not making my tulips happy!
Yesterday I made a run to Medford to pick up envelopes from Ruth. The sky was busy...
Then a run to the store for Easter "stuff". Then to the market. I saw a great license plate on the road...
Made me laugh!!!
Then that reminded me of a great sign on a beauty shop in Grants Pass...
On my way up our road I saw something spectacular...
Our mailman, Randy, in an OOOOOOficial mail truck. Wow, Rogue River has really come up in the world! Prior to this all the mail delivery was done in nondescript POVs. Randy had a big happy grin!
Claire and Lizzy stopped by to pick up some stuff and we had a short visit. Then off to Nancy and Dave's for a glass of wine. Dave has a chicken coop now with baby chicks. Two different kinds (I can't remember what they are called..)
The big ones have feathers on their feet! Funny. And the little ones are being protected by the bigger ones. Sweet.
Their dog, Skeeter, is always fun. She is highly motivated to get as much attention as she can...
Skeets is always keeping an eye on everything! 
Even when she's chewin' on her chewy... 
 and watches outside for turkeys to chase...
I had experimented earlier with Patty's jalapeño poppers. I made some with regular bacon and some with turkey bacon. Took them to Dave and Nancy's. I liked the turkey bacon best and Dave liked the real bacon best.
I had made some Easter earrings for Nancy, but forgot them. She's stopping by today to pick them up, so I'll see her later.

2010Deepwater Horizon, an oil rig owned by BP and Transocean, sinks to the bottom of the Gulf Of Mexico after having a blowout two days earlier. The well then created the largest oil spill in U.S. history by constantly gushing oil through the damaged wellhead.
And births this date include....
1906Eddie Albert, American actor (d. 2005)
1916Yehudi Menuhin, American-born violinist (d. 1999)
  Other than listening to his amazing music, I love saying his name!!

OMG, Grants Pass is getting a Carl's Jr now AND they are building a Green Burrito next to it!!! Coming up in the world!
1936Glen Campbell, American musician

.... and today is Debbie and Tom's 33rd Wedding Anniversary!
Congratulations kids!
 Tom (Prop Master) met Deb (Aspiring actress) on the set of Sgt. Pepper, the movie, in 1978... Deb is the "hot chick in yellow standing next to George Burns" (quote from their daughter Desiree! Thanks Des.)
I know too many people who are like this.... and it just never works out.... I'm at the stage where I please myself.
"I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is: Try to please everybody."

This is a fun short video of a cat ... 'I Love My Bunny Hat'
All I know. Gots stuff to do today. Nancy is growing asparagus and it will be ready soon so I'm giving her the Asparagus Enchilada recipe I have. Will pass it on later.
Happy Friday working stiffs! Ciao

April 22nd
National Jelly Bean Day
(Because I used to keep a jar of jelly beans on the kitchen sink and when my granddaughter Alex would come over, she'd always ask for a jelly bean, I nicknamed her Jelly Bean ... ergo my email address... as she called me Bobo! And now you know the rest of the story.)
