Turkey Eating Grapes ~ Elks Card ~ Good Neighbor Day

Good 57º, somewhat cloudy, morning. Wow, warmer than the past two mornings by 15º. AND, I kept the windows closed so I didn't freeze last night!

Now if you can believe this sh*t....
California has gone completely around the bend if they even for a second, consider this!!

Yesterday ....
Turkeys in the grapevines, eating the grapes!

Too funny. I looked back at my blog a year ago and also had a picture of a turkey eating grapes!! Some things don't change.

Then I went into town.....

First stop, car wash....

Ahhhhh... now old Betsy is clean again! Pretty day in Grants Pass....

Reno has their sign, GP has theirs!

Then to the cleaners, Hallmark card store (where I spent too much time and $....but it was fun!) Then I went to the Elks Lodge and got my very own member card. For a mere $2 a year I can have a card being a widow of a member. Cool. Well, not 'cool' that I am a widow, just that I can have a card! Get me? So now I don't have to be "buzzed" in, I can open the door myself!

So, I stopped to see Willie, the bartender, and wish him Happy Birthday.
