Bill Vargo RIP ~ Bruiser ~ Limoncello ~ Cold Shrimp w/ Sauce

Good 66º humid morning.

Yesterday we hit 103.5º. UGH. AND my ac was acting up. It was not working. It felt as if it was putting out hot air. I am so irritated!

The weather is typical for summer thunderstorms....


Some radar coming in from the coast but staying south.

A sad day. My friend from back in the late 60's is now a widow. Jan's husband Bill Vargo died suddenly early yesterday morning. My heart is breaking for her and her boys. RIP Bill. Your family loved you so very much. Bill was only 66 and died almost under identical circumstances as my Jerry... around 2am, his heart, and same age. Jan now lives in Vancouver. Wish I was closer to give her a hug. Love you Jan. ♥ Their Richie and my Kristen used to play together.

Mr. Bruiser was trying to catch a frog that was in the water dish..... the frogs like to live in the water can (blue, next to dish) and then they come out and go for a swim occasionally..

I had to go out and save Mr. Frog! Look at mister innocent...
