'My Soldier' ~ Beached Dead Whale ~ Mr. Squirrel the Thief!

Good 39º morning. It was sprinkling at 4:15 when Maggie had to go out and pee. Stopped now. 20% chance of rain today. Nothing on the radar.

Yesterday some folks asked me about 'my soldier'... a picture please. The USMC Birthday was his also. Yes, Jerry was a Marine for 5 years and later he joined the CAL-ARNG. He was a Sgt. and taught classes at Camp San Luis Obispo and bivouacked at Camp Roberts. I think the only reason he didn't join a USMC Reserve unit was because they were so far away .... down in Orange County. Here he is in his finest....
.... and later at Camp San Louie....

And this you won't believe... the new hiring direction that Sheriff 'Caca' is taking LASD.....

Thanks for that, Joe, I think. What in the world is next? I hate to even begin to go there .......
I get a blog from my friend Sheila Foy's daughter, Shirah. In yesterdays was a video taken in Ireland on the River Shannon by Sophie Windsor Clive of a phenomenal bird show. It gives me goosebumps to watch. Amazing....


Historically this date....

1970 – The Oregon Highway Division attempts to destroy a rotting beached Sperm whale with explosives, leading to the now infamous "exploding whale" incident.

"Ok, you can take your fingers out of your ears now!" Made me LOL.
.... and here's another one in 2009... wonder what they did with this one!

Well, 11:11 on 11-11-11 came and went without any catastrophe or alien abduction. I noted it on the computer screen:
Some pretty skies yesterday.... first one almost 11:am then the next two after 3:pm

And there was this squirrel determined to get the wild birdseed..... while Mr. Turkey looked on and wished he could get up there too...

Maggs just lay on her 'princess bed' and watched...

Sorry, didn't cook yesterday. Had lots of reruns to go through, although I did cook a couple of artichokes. I always put lemon juice over them, garlic powder, olive oil, salt and pepper. The house smelled heavenly!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao
