Happenin' ~ Cheezy Polenta w/ Garlic Shrimp ~ Raggyann

Good 50ยบ morning. Summer is still here! Patty
said over on the coast it was cold and she even
turned on the heater! Lucky.

Little pink clouds out this morning.

I forgot to mention that Monday I watched a good movie, docudrama, October Sky, about a W. Virginia coal miner's son who becomes a NASA scientist. Starred Jake Gyllenhaal.
If you get a chance to see it, you will enjoy it.

Trip to the dentist for my bi-yearly cleaning yesterday morning. A+ report on teeth and gums from the doc. Yeah! See ya in March!

Then an impromptu mini-happening at the Elks in the afternoon ... Joann and Joe are heading to Depot Bay for a week and Jeannie and Bill are going to 7 Feathers to camp out and "read" for several days. So since Jeannie will be gone for her birthday, we had a round of toasts to her advancing age. (? baby!)

How fun that Dee and her girlfriend Kathy walked in too
so it was Joann, me, Jeannie, and Dee ... and the boys...
Bill & Joe.

Happy almost Birthday BFW!

And births this date include...

1936Buddy Holly, American singer (The Crickets) (d. 1959)

1937John Phillip Law, American actor (d. 2008)

His initials are the same as the "rocket place" in Pasadena!

1954Corbin Bernsen, American actor

Dinner last night was stir-fried garlicky shrimp on top of baked cheezy polenta ... with some of my own tomatoes. (The plant Cindy gave me and so far have had 6 tomatoes!)

I am very very unhappy with the way this site is acting today.
It is not lining up the way I want it to. So, enough for now!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Wednesday. LE/Fire luncheon today.

Or as my Kristen called her ..."Raggyann".
A little doll that got lots of love!
