My Mom ~ Cool Squirrel ~ FBI Cats


Good 48º morning. Cooler yesterday by about 10 degrees. Saturday at 1pm it was 91º and yesterday at 2pm it was 82º. Nice.

If you are up early enough and read this, this link is the live webcam at the Acropolis in Athens Greece. There is 10 hours difference between the west coast USA and Athens...

... and this one shows more of the construction going on there....

Today is my Mother's birthday. She was born to Scottish immigrant parents in 1905 in Cleveland Ohio in her Aunt Nells' home. Aunt Nell's children played with the boy next door... Bob Hope. My Mom was a wonderful woman, so kind and loving. She had me after she turned 40, so I was probably the reason for her gray hair! LOL.


... and Mom on her birthday in 1973 with Kristen and Brian..


Happy Birthday Mom! I love and miss you so much! ♥

In the heat, the critters do what makes them comfortable.. out on the back porch Mr. Squirrel was spread out on the cool cement...


PJ and I went to Costco yesterday. First stopped at the Rogue River Growers Mart and PJ bought tomatoes and I chatted with Gary..


He makes the BEST birdhouses and he makes bat houses and flicker houses. He's there every Sunday. If you are on FB go to Gary's Avian Abodes.....!/pages/Garys-Avian-Abodes/194059200651833

Costco was fun, as always. I bought salted in the shell peanuts so I can get Jerry's smoker up here to the house and smoke some of those babies! They are SOOOOOOOOOO good smoked!!! Addictive. Wanted to stop at 7 Oaks for corn, but forgot they are closed on Sunday. We did stop at the pottery place to take some pictures for Jeannie. She wants a pot for a plant. Or is it she wants to plant pot? I forget.  
 Oh well, here's the pots....


So many pretty ones and lots of fun statues too..


Came home, had lunch, and the Poopsie Do was sooo happy I was home and she could come in and nap...


Later we put the trash can out on the road and then stopped at PJ's to give the "girls" a box to play in. PJ said Neko and Rio are FBI... Feline Box Inspectors!

Left there and went to the barn. I set off some bug bombs inside after I determined the smoker was too awkward for me to move alone. I'll need help.

Had a nice sunset....
