LE/Fire Lunch ~ Smile Video ~ X Rated Fusion ~ Ice Cream Sandwich Day

Good 52º clear sunny morning.

Yesterday was the Law Enforcement/Fire lunch. Check this of LAPD's finest sat with us at the "LASD" table! Walter is a super neat guy. 91 years old. Retired over 40 years. Happily in LA City's coffers for a long long time! He was in the Navy in WWII and has a tattoo he got in the South Pacific that is older than me! LOL. We had a fun chat.

Stopped to shop at the liquor store to buy some Everclear (190 proof!) to make limoncello. The recipe comes from Bob Mallon (LASD Ret.) Can't wait to make it.

I brought half my chef salad home, so that was dinner.

Ann Ramirez (LASD Ret) sent me the following picture. Ray Gaster is a businessman in Georgia and apparently fed up with the sh*t coming out of the mouth of the idiot in the White House!
Thumbs up, Ray!

From my friend, Deeewayne Honeee Preimsberger... a real smile trigger here:

And another friend, Pat Reardon (also LASD Ret!) sent the following laugh:

I was in a pub last Saturday night,
drank a few, and noticed two very large women at the bar.
They both had pretty strong accents, so I asked, "Hey,
are you two ladies from Ireland?"

One of them chirped saying, "It's WALES, you friggin' idiot!"

So, I immediately apologized and said, "I'm sorry .. Are you two whales from Ireland?"

That's pretty much the last thing I remember.

Speaking of imbibing... got a new liquor. It's called X Rated. It is a "fusion liqueur" made in Italy. "A sensuous fusion of ultra premium French vodka & Sicilian Blood Orange mingling with mango and passion fruit." WOW. Pretty good sipping.
