Good 55º early morning. Up too early. Can't sleep. Groan....
Yesterday I went into town to do some shopping. Got what PJ said was an awesome yellow jacket trap. It's called Victor Yellow Jacket Magnet. Hung it up right away. Now waiting for results.
Met Jeannie and Bill at the Elks for a little whine time with our favorite bartender Willie. We had fun. A couple came in from CA who were on their way home from Eugene visiting relatives. Bill and Michelle. Nice! Sat next to us. Then their friend came in. Bill. So it was Bill - Michelle- Bill - Sue - Jeannie - AND Bill! Geeze... even the bartender was a Bill!!! Bill and Michelle bought us drinks. VERY nice folks and we had a good time chatting with them. They live near Sacramento and ride Harleys. Whoot whoot..... Their friend Bill had on this shirt I loved....
Dang cops! What a bunch of party poopers!
Jeannie and Bill gave me some bounty from their garden...
See that cut tomato in front. With just a bit of sea salt it was HEAVEN!!!! Lord knows one of my most favorite foods is tomatoes. Jerry didn't like tomatoes until I had our first garden and I grew him some. "OMG, he said, these are GOOD!!!" Well, nothing better than home grown and ripened on the vine. Fruit of the Gods. Fresh ripe sliced tomato on sourdough bread with BF mayonnaise. Nothing better!
My "phone chain" Jeannie and Candy (thanks Bob!) called
me to say they heard thunder over in Grants Pass. So, I gave Maggs the tranquilizers and within 45 minutes she was like..... cool man.... like wow man... all relaxed and still awake but soooooooooooooooooo laid back and unconcerned. Of course
we never got the thunderboomers here, but glad to know the pills worked and I can use them if thunder does happen.
