82* ~ Fresh Salmon ~ Old Movie Star's Homes

Good 52º overcast morning. Weather says it will not rain, just stay cloudy and cooler than yesterday.
Yesterday hit 82º. Winter was trying to leave, Spring never showed, and Summer was here! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa..............
So... looks like Sunday will be a nice day. Hope so. Aaron and Marie here.
On my way to Central Point yesterday Mt. McLaughlin was spectacular against a blue sky...
Yesterday was our Republican Women's luncheon. Our speaker was  Dr. Art Robinson. He ran against Pete DeFazio (asshole) in Dist 4 for Oregon Congress.  Since 3 of Art's kids are at Oregon State going for their doctorates and the school was funded in a large amount by the Democrats the school has made it impossible for the kids. Basically the school is pro Democrat and pro DeFazio. It's been a huge mess. One professor who tried to intercede got fired.
Dr. Robinson went to Cal-Tech (Pasadena) and is very interesting to listen to. Easy to listen to. Calm. Informative. It was enjoyable.
Lunch was a great salad, Caesar type with lots of Parmesan, pasta (I didn't eat) and chicken with a pesto sauce. Tender and juicy. Oh, and carrots that had a Rosemary touch. Wonderful. I was good, no dessert.
Left there and headed to Costco. Looked like they were giving away free stuff as the parking lot was filled! Then, of course, I walked all the way into the store and forgot my list! Dang. So walked all the way back to the truck. Sheepishly told the door guy I was here once but.... blah blah blah.... He laughed.
Came home. Road full of idiot drivers. Must be on cell phones or texting or just inattentive. Bugs me.
My neighbors Cindy and Frank's friend caught more salmon and they shared a giant piece with me. I cooked some night before last and again last night. I just crispy sauteéd it in lemon infused olive oil. Put it on a bed of spinach drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice and tomatoes. HEAVEN! I have individually bagged the rest for dinners later...
(Wednesday night's piece is missing from the slab...)
