Rain ~ Doves ~ Greece ~ AWESOME Dog Photo ~ Shrimp Salad

Good 53ยบ cloudy possibly rainy (50% chance) morning.

It poured on me coming back from Medford yesterday afternoon, but not much rain fell here and none in GP! Those sneaky little cells!

The doves have returned! Every spring the little darlin's show up.... these guys were sitting in the grass in the backyard...
They frighten easy, so I poked my camera lens through the blinds, but as you can tell, they were looking at me!

If you like anything or all things Greek... you will like this site...

This photo was on Webshots and I love it! I put it on my desktop.
Such a sweet face!! So intent on Mrs. Ladybug. What an outstanding photo!

Lettuce, baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, and shrimp into the bowl.

Make a dressing with mayonnaise, lemon juice, citrus pepper, sea salt, and Tuscany seasoning...... AWESOME!
