Heat & Earthquakes ~ Mammograms ~ Rice Pudding

Good 56º morning. I think we hit 92º yesterday. Kristen had 111º in San Gabriel on Tuesday but they got a break yesterday and it was only 104º BUT they had a couple of earthquakes!! Even those seeming little ones (4.5) get your nerves standing straight up!

Good thing my AC guy will be here tomorrow as Saturday is predicted to be over 100º ... one site says 106º. UGH! AND I get my TV fixed today. YEAH!

LOL, my pal Erika in La Crescenta sent me this cartoon that was in the LA Times...... hilarious!

My Patriots had practice with the New Orleans Saints this week. Tom Brady and Drew Brees go back a long way and are mutually complimentary of each other. Love this picture, after practice a little visit... notice Tom's pup!
