Good 50º foggy (natch) morning. Yesterday was a beauty of a day! Supposed to stay somewhat cloudy for a few and then rain predicted. for Thurs, Fri, and maybe Sat. We'll see.
Yesterday the Dept of Forestry was doing a controlled burn up on the mountain...
I don't get it ... when it 's a day with an "inversion layer" and we can't do open or barrel burning, yet the DoF can???? Obviously the 'rules' don't apply to everyone!
In case you don't go on FB, here is something I posted (Thanks T!)
And this always makes me laugh... my pals and their sign...
If you notice to the left (giggle) is the RR sign. Since some dirtbag lefty liberals have been stealing the RomneyRyan signs up here, Dave put it high enough so they couldn't. They have had the 'No Friggin' Way' sign up for some time, but added the NoBama sign up high too so the jerks can't reach it!!!
And speaking of the upcoming election, yesterday I met up with Bob Olsson, a Jackson County Republican Hq committee person, and we had a list of those Republicans who hadn't voted in recent elections. We had door hangers for them, some we talked to... spent about 2 hours driving around Rogue River and leaving information, i.e.: too late to mail ballot, but drop boxes available in RR, Wimer, and Medford. It was interesting.
Mike (who was the birthday boy on the 3rd) and Nan Cipolla are celebrating their anniversary today. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS! I will have a martini in your honor tonight!
Historically this date.....
... yeah yeah yeah, that was the name of my high school... Woodrow Wilson. Natch the mascot was a Mule! Sue Shewalter and I were the 'inside workings' of the mascot. We'd parade around on the football field, sitting on the players laps (ha ha ha... that was Sue's end!!!) and being silly. What a job, you get really sweaty inside those costumes! I doubt if anyone ever took our picture. Sad.
1970 – Vietnam War: The United States Military Assistance Command in Vietnam reports the lowest weekly American soldier death toll in five years (24).
2006 – Saddam Hussein, former president of Iraq, and his co-defendants Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti and Awad Hamed al-Bandar are sentenced to death in the al-Dujail trial for the role in the massacre of the 148 Shi'as in 1982.
2009 – US Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan kills 13 and wounds 29 at Fort Hood, Texas in the deadliest mass shooting at a US military installation.
..... we can only hope this freak is put to death! He does not deserve to live and have his life paid for by the citizens of the US!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao

Donut Appreciation Day (and boy do I appreciate donuts!)
If you lived in Los Angeles area you probably saw at one time or another Randy's Donuts in Inglewood....
And for me the special donut shop was Winchell's in Temple City....
On my first date with Jerry, in Steve's borrowed Porsche, after dinner Jerry drove up on the sidewalk in front of Winchell's and ordered two coffees from the walk up window! LOL. Nut. Of course it was one of the local Deputy hangouts!
