Flo Jo's Daughter ~ Meatloaf Sandwich ~ Claire ~ Swallows ~ Strawberry Parfait


Good 53º cloudy morning. Stayed pretty cloudy all day yesterday.... this is 4:30pm...

Today's weather doesn't sound good.... for Maggie anyway, she's afraid of thunder and I have to be gone for a bit this afternoon....


Last night I watched America's Got Talent and was amazed at Florence Joyner's daughter, Mary, who sang. She was awesome. Her mom, Flo Jo, won 5 Olympic medals, broke 2 world records, and her daughter was only 7 when her mom died. Her dad, Al, was with her and he had won medals as well as a gold medal in 1984 in Los Angeles.

Flo Jo died suddenly in her sleep... here is the story of the track and field royalty ... Flo and Al...

Today I go see an orthotics guy. Since my rheumatologist told me I have plantar fasciitis and needed special orthotics for my shoes, I contacted the guy who did Brian's. Appointment with him today. Shall be interesting.

As I said yesterday, it was meatloaf sandwich day....
I don't make meatloaf often, so this is a real treat!

Sooooooo sorry I missed my friend, Claire Atteberry's birthday yesterday. Claire is a phenomenonal writer, cook, mom, gardener..... She has an article in the local RR paper weekly re gardening. She works with her husband Dave, who along with his dad own Rogue River Roofing. My roof guys! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY CLAIRE~!
Oh, and she catches BIG fish!

Strawberry Parfait Day
Using parfait or wine glasses or even a small mason jar, alternate two or three layers each of vanilla ice cream with sliced strawberries (and blueberries). Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprig of mint. For breakfast or brunch, replace the ice cream and whipped cream with nonfat yogurt and add a sprinkling of granola or cereal flakes to each layer. Or use pudding in the layers or tapioca. It's all good!

..... or you can celebrate National Catfish Day!
