Good 58º (wow, warm) morning! Cloudy. Very cloudy.
... when I went out to take a picture of my mountain along came a bunch of turkeys..... out of sight is a water tub.. they stopped by for a drink...
Sheesh, October! Where'd the summer go?? Sigh....
Here is a great and simple. Perfect for dinner ready when you get home from work or shopping....

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Your favorite spaghetti sauce
Put all in crockpot on low and cook all day. (How hard is that!) When ready to eat, cook your favorite pasta, drain, shred chicken and spoon over hot pasta.

1918 – World War I: Arab forces under T. E. Lawrence, also known as "Lawrence of Arabia" capture Damascus.
..... boy howdy, I remember that one. Standing in the kitchen, Jerry gone to work and the kids gone to school... everything in every cabinet was rattling. Brian and his pal Alex were sitting at a signal light and thought someone had bumped into them. Brian later skipped out from school to come home and make sure 'mom' was ok.
And births this date include....
1909 – Sam Yorty, American politician (d. 1998)
.... Ha ha ha.. the mayor of Los Angeles from 1961-1973 and he never once pronounced Los Angeles correctly. He always said "Los Angle-leeez". What a poop!
Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men, a couple of my favorite films!

..... oh yes! This boy had some guns on him!!! Yummmm...
Daddy had his Marilyn Monroe picture in his closet and she always got a wolf whistle when he went in the closet! I have my Mark McGwire milk ad picture in a cupboard and he gets the wolf whistle when I open it!
Yesterday I went to town and narrowly missed getting caught in the middle of the RR High School Homecoming Parade....
Fortunately just to the left is a street that I managed to get turned onto so I didn't have to wait for the parade to go by. Good timing!
As I was leaving later for Grants Pass a bunch of fire trucks went up our road. Local, Grants Pass Fire, Medford Fire, and Dept. of Forestry.... I stopped in at the fire station
and asked where the fire was. It was about 6 miles north of me. Garage fully engulfed when fire arrived. Must have threatened surrounding forest to have that large of a call out. When I came home about 8:30 pm the fire must have been out as the fire crews were heading back to town.
Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, Jean, Bill, Jeannie, and I all met at Tap Rock to celebrate Tucker's birthday, finally! I had that trip to the ER for my back last week when we were going to celebrate. Tucker was happy with the helicopter he got from B&J and the Leggos from Bobo and 7 whole $1 bills I put in his card!
We also celebrated Jean's up coming birthday. She was also happy with the one $1 bill in her card!
And Sami modeled Bill's hat....
We ate outside on the deck over looking the Rogue River. Beautiful evening. Good food. Good company.
All I know. MUST get the mowing done today and the tomatoes pickled...OR ELSE! Happy Saturday. Ciao.
October is National Chili Month
