26º ~ Kalamata Olive Bread ~ Harley Davis ~ Pole Down ~ Peanut Butter Cluster Recipe

Good 26º morning. Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr......................... I doubt if there is much out there that isn't frozen! Not different from last year on this date... same temperature!


Grass..... frozen!


My pal Jeannie told me she got some awesome bread in California at Safeway. It's their 'Artisan Kalamata Olive' bread. I asked her if she could get it in Grants Pass at the Safeway and she said they didn't have it. I called and they do!! Apparently they get some in every morning, but it sells out fast. I had them hold the last loaf they had, for me. I dashed off and picked it up. Came home and had some, dipped in garlic infused olive oil. OMGOOOOOD!!!!!

While shopping at Safeway I was talking to the produce guy. His name is Harley. I told him about my cat Harley
, who recently passed away at 22. I told him how he was named after Jerry's new Harley Davidson Fat Boy

.....and he laughed, and said his last name is Davis... and he also has a son who is Harley...that would be Harley Davis' son. OH MY GOSH!

Here is my stack of wood that The Timinator cut and split for me....
It will dry out now through the summer and be ready for next winter.

Yesterday the Pacific Power guys came out and pulled the old utility pole out of the ground.

They filled the hole with dirt and gravel. Now when Frank is ready to cut the pole for the bridge repair, he won't have to take it down first!
