Artoff Plumbing ~ Doe and Fawn ~ Seafood Salad ~

Good 51º cloudy morning. Cloudy? Come on... Last night around 7pm, the sky had some really strange looking clouds... pancakes and lacy edges....
This morning is another cloud feast....
So, the danged sink was finally fixed by Big Mike. YEAH! He is a local plumber... Artoff Plumbing....  Good guy, nice family. Website is Give them your business if you are here in the Rogue Valley. Honest and does a good job!
Yesterday Patty sent me the following two pictures of the little doe and her 2 day old fawn....

Just tooooo precious!!!!!
I had to laugh (cry) at the gas prices... same as my license plate... 417.
Had a terrible time with blogspot yesterday. It wouldn't let me download pictures to my blog. If I used the "edit html" I could place pictures on it, but that is a pain in the buttinski! I'm not good at reading html. Grrrrrrrr... So, shut the whole darned thing down and waited until later. I did however, put in my two cents on the forum and me along with the complaints of over 80 people got the danged thing fixed.
I still have an old computer sitting here and finally decided to take some of the stuff off of it and put it on an external drive. Will see if someone wants this computer.
Have you realized that pilgrimages have already started to Bin Laden's gravesite....

Read his story. Weird. Didn't know this stuff about Jeff Smith.

To see some of Janie's handy work :
Last night was high excitement. Caught up on Tivo'd shows, chatted with a couple of BFF's on the phone. Jeannie is packing for a trip and then company soon as they return home. Candy getting ready for company. And, Aaron and Marie due back here any minute on their way back home. Also some former LASD folks are going to be passing through Friday, Chickee & Norm, and will stop. Patty said she had scared the little fawn yesterday and it got up and ran away. Momma was not around at the time. Then later she saw 'mom' and baby together. Yeah! Tread softly around thy yard Patricia!
All I know. Nuff said. Ciao.
