Crazy World ~ Clouds/Turkeys/Geese ~ Dude! ~ RIP Boston Victims

Good 34º clear morning. Ice on the barn roof. Should hit 70º today! YEAH. Tucker has a baseball game at 2. Nice if it's warm.

Sure has been some crazy stuff going on .... here and across the country. Boston has been totally bizarre. Thank God the suspect was caught! Explosion in Texas. BUT, in Rogue River the police were chasing a bull down the street! I haven't heard the outcome of that yet. And Thursday Brian went to the bank (inside the Albertson's near his office)
and the doors were being locked. He was puzzled but found out the bank had just been robbed! Lordy swan! Then Kristen said last night there was a bomb scare at Cal State LA
AND one near Jack's school in San Gabriel. His school was on lock-down until it was resolved. Geeeesh.


I love seeing the cloud formations here. Never had such pretty ones in So. Cal. I think the smog layer always obliterated most pretty sky happenings! Anyway, here are two photos taken an hour apart yesterday afternoon...


....and while I was taking pictures the turkeys were strutting...

And all the geese were congregated up in the pasture....

Dude went to the groomer yesterday. He's not leash trained, so when I took him out of the back of the truck he just about drug me across the parking lot~! He was nervous and didn't want to be put in the cage. But he was calmed down. Dave stopped by to see him and Dude was happy. Dave insisted he pay for the bath and nail trim. Silly. When I picked him up he was smelling good and had a green bandana around his neck!!!
On the way home I introduced him to the other "Daves" I know.. Dave at Ace and PJ and Dave. Came home and he bolted for the porch and came in and napped. Happy clean puppy!

RIP Martin Richard, Lu Lingzi, Krystal Cambell, and Sean Collier.

And God Speed in recovery to all those injured. I sat and watched the capture of the suspect last night. Made me so sad to see what these two young men did and how so many suffer from it.

Here is an image caught of little Martin and the suspect dropping the bomb near him.

Cooking wasn't on my mind so this was dinner.... It's really good. Less calories. I added some chopped Roma tomatoe.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Yard work day! Ciao.
