Patriots Win! ~ Pond ~ Honey Mustard Mayo ~ Peanut Day

Good 53º morning. Looks like we're going to stay in the 80ºs for a few days and then cool to the 70ºs.

An historical game, my Patriots led by Tom Brady won 38 -24 over the Miami Dolphins.

What was historic, Brady threw 517 yards and Henne (Dolphins QB) threw over 400 so the total was over 900 yards in passes. Wes Welker ran a 99.5 yard touchdown. Good game!!! Whooooooooot whoooooooot! Full moon didn't affect my guys! Even Brady has cut his hair. I was going to have a chat with him about that. Good thing he thought that through. Next Sunday, Cliffie, it's my boys against your Chargers! (smile)

Yesterday I forgot to mention that the husband, Gerry, of my friend Lydia in Diamond Bar was on the American Airlines flight 34 from LAX to JFK on the 11th..... If you didn't see this on the news, here is the synopsis...

Fighter jets were scrambled Sunday to escort American Airlines Flight 34, heading from Los Angeles to New York City’s JFK airport, after three passengers reportedly locked themselves in a bathroom. Fighter jets sent to escort passenger plane to New York JFK

Fighter jets were scrambled Sunday to escort American Airlines Flight 34, heading from Los Angeles to New York City’s JFK airport, after three passengers reportedly locked themselves in a bathroom and were "not compliant." North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) spokesman John Cornelio described the measure as precautionary, saying the jets intercepted the flight about 100 miles west of New York and shadowed it until it landed, the AP reports.With New York City on edge because of the 9/11 anniversary, and recent Al Qaeda threats, NBC News reports:The Transportation Security Administration said in a statement that it was "notified of passengers allegedly behaving suspiciously" onboard the flight at about 3 p.m., and that the jets were scrambled "out of an abundance of caution."An official told the WSJ that a federal air marshal aboard the plane did not feel the situation was serious enough to identify himself and take action. The airline says it didn't request the F-16s, while a military official told NBC that military jets were patrolling New York and Washington as a routine precaution for 9/11.
The three passengers, it turns out, were merely drunk, and eventually returned to their seats. The plane then landed at JFK and was reportedly being met by law enforcement officials.

Yesterday I smoked some peanuts, just so I'd have some for today!

Maggie was keeping an eye out for squirrels.
Later we took a drive in the golf cart up to the pond....
(way up there at the end of the road)

The water is really low, something I can't figure out since we had such a wet winter and it hasn't been the hottest summer.
Anyone interested in a boat?
The view from there looking southwest...
"my mountain" is to the left...

Then we went to the mailbox and on the way back there were clouds. Nothing ever came of them..... predicted "maybe" thunderboomers.. but not.
Dinner was rerun black bean salad on lettuce and corn on the cob with honey mustard mayonnaise spread.

All I know. Tomato pickin' day. Wine at Elks. Tuesday Tacos at Double R (formerly Creekside). Ciao.

September 13th
National Peanut Day
Did you know that peanuts are not nuts, they're legumes? Peanuts are an extraordinary food crop, grown around the world. Many of us think of salted, roasted peanuts when we hear the word. But boiled peanuts, peanut oil, and peanut butter are all common uses for peanuts. They're even the tastiest part of Cracker Jack! ("Boiled peanuts" YUCK! Hot and soft. PUKE! And don't be puttin' any in my Coke® either!)
