Weird Dream ~ Dog Saves Friends ~ Spaghetti Bacon Casserole ~ Dessert Day

Good 54ยบ reallllly cloudy, sitting down on top of us cloudy, morning. More rain expected.... nothing on the radar just satellite clouds...



Hey Wilsonites... this is just bizarre.... I had a dream Friday night and in it were Charles "Chuck" Iverson and Betty Overstreet! I knew Chuck but not well, he and Betty were both in S'62. I had gone to Betty's funeral when I was a senior, and sorry, can't remember why she died. Just so strange that I would dream about those two. I really had/have no connection to them. I know Betty was friends with Judy Heinneman, that's all. I woke up shaking my head.
I still haven't figured out the way to scan these annual pictures so the resolution is better. Sorry.

Here is an awesome video.... from my JCRW friend, Karen Green... Thanks Karen. Made me cry.. for happy!

Last night's sky was pretty. No sky out there right now!

Ok, this makes me hungry. I think I have all the ingredients to make it for dinner tonight!
Bacon-Alfredo Casserole
Looking for a cheesy dinner using Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ peas? Ok, Jeannie, you don't have to use peas, any other combo of veggies will work. Pick your favorite.
