~ John Wayne ~ Diet Dinner ~ Blueberry Cheesecake ~

Good 41ยบ cloudy morning. Rained on and off all day yesterday. Wonder what is in store for us today!
Went to town to the market. You'd think we still had a full moon the way some of the locals were driving. OMG. What idiots. Too fast. Too slow. Tailgating. And generally just not paying attention!
Today was John Wayne's birthday. Marion Michael Morrison born on May 26, 1907 and died on June 11, 1979.
The Morrison's in my family are related to him. Jerry's mother named him John Wayne Maxwell. His dad said, "NO". So Winona decided to change it to Jerry Wayne Maxwell. That worked.

The rain really came down for awhile yesterday. Looks like we got about 1/3 of an inch.
This little hummingbird was keeping an eye on the feeder and sitting on the weather vane.... turning back and forth with the wind.
.... and if there aren't enough meatheads talking there is Harold Camping, the idiot who predicted the end of the world on May 21st. He used 'numerology' ! Brilliant.
Now it's going to be "Rapture" on October 31st. Lordy.
Look, I have an artichoke already!
Sitting here at my desk I can watch the bluebird activity...

They keep busy even when Maggie is out there, but when Harley wants to go our and peruse the porch, they birds panic!
Spent the day doing indoor stuff. Sorted out the pictures from Debbie's birthday fiesta and got them emailed off to her. Worried about Maggie... she just won't eat. Sigh.....
At almost 6pm last night we had a lovely sky...
Dinner was (part of my diet) Chicken Parmesan Pasta on a bed of lettuce with broccoli, red peppers, and avocado. A drizzle of lemon juice on the salad parts and a little olive oil. Good!

 Ok, what is up with this????
 Now what?
So far, the finales of all the shows on TV have been over the top disappointing. Say you?
If it doesn't rain I have to mow. Keep thy digits crossed! Otherwise, it's indoor projects. Have a good day!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Thursday.
