Good 33º foggy morning. We had some rain yesterday and the snow was on the very tops of the mountains. We only have a 30% chance of rain today.
Night before last I was hungry for a salad. Mixed up baby spinach, avocado, carrots, broccoli, and sweet peppers. Made a dressing of mayonnaise, lemon juice, and olive oil (infused with lemon). Whisk it all together. YUMMMMMM! (P.S. I store lemon juice in an old wine bottle "Mad Housewife Chard".....)
Yesterday was the LE/Fire lunch. Only two of us LASD attending, Dale and I .... so some of the LAPD guys asked us to join their table. Nice. One guy, Walter, 90 years old and retired for 40 years! He has a lady who takes him to church and the LE functions, her name is Carolyn and she used to be one of LASD's radio room dispatchers! Two other LAPD guys, Lee who is a client of my Brian's (State Farm), and Frank who worked El Sereno...where I grew up. Frank and I had a fun chat about old El Sereno ... the American Legion Hall where many dances took place (and fights), Curries Ice Cream, Manny's Tacos....
I had sauteéd a pupusa (cornmeal stuffed with cheese) and cooked and egg for breakfast. Put some Frank's Hot Sauce over the top. Had it with some avocado, pepper, carrot salad ... . OMG!!!
Of course, then I wasn't hungry for lunch. So, I ordered the deli sandwich and soup. Ate the soup and brought the sandwich home for dinner!
If you haven't seen the news.... read this!
What in the heqq is the wuss in the White House going to do? Get on his jet and go play golf? Or..... the Idiot President could send that other idiot Dennis Rodman back over there, because after all Dennis did say, “He loves power. He loves control,” Rodman said, of his new “friend.” “But guess what? He doesn’t want war. That’s one thing he doesn’t want.” I think I'm going to throw up!
UPSETTING to say the least!
Today my two pals, Linda and Andy Nantz, are celebrating 49 years of marriage! Wow. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!!
