Good 42º raining morning. Rain started sometime between 2am and 6am. So far 6/100ths of an inch.
Yesterday I went to town and picked up a parcel at the PO, dropped off a letter, got a prescription at the pharmacy and headed to Grants Pass. Stopped at a signal by the shopping center I saw Nancy drive by and into the center. I followed her. She was off doing errands too and I was heading to the Elk's Lodge for our Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon. We chatted for a few.
The lunch was nice. Another LAPD retiree was honored for his birthday ... he turned 90 on October 31st. He started with LAPD after a stint in the Navy 62 years ago! He's been into their retirement fund forever! Go Walter!
The gentleman next to Walter is Henry, who turned 95 in August... also retired from LAPD.
My lunch was great, chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. Indulgence to the max! After lunch we (Joe, Bill, Bob) went downstairs for a glass of wine.. and Dale was there along with my pal Jeannie. We had a nice time, picked on Joe ... the usual. (Good thing Joe is such a good sport and fun guy!)
Out in the parking lot I had to stop and visit with Dusty... awaiting the return of his dad inside the Elks.
and.... then there was Chaka-Kune, the girl to whom I gave a Milk Bone to... She's got some tongue action there!
Headed home. Dinner was reruns. Had a snuggy fire and watched TV.
Today is two celebrations.... my friends Ann and Gabe are celebrating their 21st anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids!
I don't have any pictures of them together... so here is Ann with Mali and Gabe working on a project. Some of you LASD folks may recognize them..... <g>
And through my traveling friend, Joan, I have met via email her cousin Mike. Today is Mike's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE! Today is the big 8-O for Mike. He and his wife Nan just recently took the whole family on a cruise to celebrate. Thanks for sharing them Mike. One of these days Nan and I are going to have to do a "martini day"!
Historically this date....
1883 – American Old West: Self-described "Black Bart the poet" gets away with his last stagecoach robbery, but leaves a clue that eventually leads to his capture.
And births this date include...
..wonder why "comedians" named Roseanne or Rosie are such vulgar pieces of work?
She is now an "organic macadamia nut farmer" in Hawaii. More like an "organic nut" herself!
(Now guys and gals ... in particular Joe, Jeannie, Bill, Bob, Dale, Dee, Candy .... doesn't this picture make her look like Joe's bride Joann? !!)
Ok, all I know. Haircut day. Happy Thursday. Ciao.
National Sandwich Day
(This is gonna make you drool......)
