Good 44º cloudy morning. My rain gauge said we got 1/3" of rain over night. A total of 1/2" for 24 hours. It was wet yesterday, for sure! Don't know what today will bring.
It's not looking all that great for our JCRW White Elephant sale on Saturday! Keep your fingers crossed for us.
My back surgery was 2 years ago today. L4 & L5 were anchored with pins and rods. What a great thing that was. Such an improvement!!! Thanks God for providing me with such an awesome neurosurgeon! Doctor Ross, he's the best.
Ok, how about a great recipe....
An all time favorite and so easy. My recipe page is a mess, dotted with spots from olive oil, lemon juice, and Worchestershire sauce!
Sue's Marinated Mushrooms
2 parts oil (salad oil, or 1/2 salad oil and 1/2 olive oil)
1 part lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
dried chopped parsley or fresh flat leaf parsley
Wash or rub mushrooms to remove any dirt and then dry thoroughly.
Mix oil, lemon juice, garlic , salt and pepper. Add add about 1t. of Worchestershire sauce. Add several pinches of basil, oregano, and parsley. Pour over mushrooms in a container where they can all swim in the marinade. I put them in a quart jar and every half hour or so, turn it upside down.
Let marinate at least 2 hours in the fridge or 1 hour out. Stir while marinating. These make a great accompaniment to any meal.
And as for Mr. Cool Breeze, his name is Larry Lacy, a strip club owner who is not the nicest person in the world. Has caused an uproar in Josephine county since 2005 and has sued EVERYBODY!
Here's a site and his picture from 2005
Now he looks like a pimp!
And from the Daily Courier:
What a piece of work. Creepy to boot. Still can't understand he and Betty Blob!

I don't know why, but for some reason this man has always bugged me and I never liked him.

I have this 1955 MM calendar. Daddy had it in his walk-in closet. We knew when he was in the closet because he would 'wolf whistle'!!
I like his acting, but men who have ponytails and earrings are a big turn off!
