Good 47º foggy morning. Hmmmm... where did that stuff come from. Yesterday started out drizzling (not happy since I was going to a parade) but it stopped by the time the parade was passing by.

Yesterday was the Boatnik Parade in Grants Pass... my friends from the Marine Corps League carried the flags...
And our State Representative in Salem, Dennis Richardson was there....
(waving to me and asking how I was!) After spending his childhood in Los Angeles, California, Richardson volunteered for the U.S. Army where he was a decorated helicopter pilot in Vietnam.
.... and then there was our local Channel 12 news anchor, Ron Brown.... HI RON!
Bill and Jeannie and I anchored a corner of a building, under a cover and stayed dry. Then after the parade to the American Legion Hall for a glass of wine. Nice day.
My friend Modesto Tammy sent this... .hilarious!
Friends are like underwear ... some crawl up your ass ... some snap under pressure ... some don't have the strength to hold you up ... some get a little twisted ... some are your favorite ... some are cheap and just plain nasty .. and some actually do cover your ass when you need them to.
A special birthday today... Andy Nantz.... dear friend and USMC pal of Jerry's.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDY!
(like how I put this by the underwear, Andy ...)
