Salmon & Eggs ~ Dude ~ Pasta/Meatballs/Spinach ~ "Babs" ~ Zucchini Bread

Good 36º clear morning. Supposedly hit 80º yesterday, but it was breezy and comfortable. Today there is 0 visibility at the coast. Big old fog moved in. Will be low 80ºs here today.


An old joke:
I've been in love with the same woman for 49 years. If my wife finds out, she'll kill me!

And one of the world's shortest books:
By Dennis Rodman

Breakfast yesterday was so yummy! I heated half a can of salmon in a frying pan. Mixed up 3 eggs with some ricotta cheese and added them. Cooked, turning often. Drizzled on some sweet hot chili sauce. Voilá! Some egg left so put on toast for lunch.

Today is the 115th day of the year, 250 more to go til the last day of 2013!

Yesterday I took Dude to his old vet's, Dr. Mike, for a heartworm test. We got a new collar that works for 8 months keeping fleas and tics off him. It's interesting and made in Germany! Dr. Mike said he's using them on his dogs and they seem to work great. Ok, will give it a try. Cheaper at about half of the cost of Frontline for 8 months! He also got heartworm meds. He was very good and the staff at the vets were all happy to see him! On top of that, he's lost 11 pounds. He was overweight to the tune of 100.1 pounds... now he's 88.7. I am feeding him Beneful. He loves it.

I told you about him pulling out of his collar to follow me... well he was in the back of my SUV. I stopped to visit Leah (my friend/hairdresser). We were talking and Dude climbed from the back to the front seat and jumped out the window! OMG. He doesn't want me out of his sight! Got him back in the truck and Leah just fell in love with him! What a nut he is. Can't get out of the truck and leave the windows all the way down when he's with me!

Back home and a chat with BFF and some wine. Then dinner....
Angel Hair pasta, veggie meatballs, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, parmesan cheese, basil, butter, and olive oil.
Sauté mushrooms, tomatoes, meatballs, basil, and a pat of butter.
Add spinach, cooked pasta, and parmesan cheese. Heat through.

In regards to the note on Barbra Streisand being such a beeeotch in yesterday's blog.....this from my friend George B......

A few years ago, when I still lived in CA, I went to a seafood restaurant Newport Beach with some friends. While we were enjoying ourselves, Barbra and her man, showed up for dinner. No reservations, imagine that. Anyway, they got seated and had their meals. The entire place knew that they were there. No one cared. It was hilarious to overhear some of the conversations about them. All were unimpressed. No one went to visit them. The conversations were about what assholes they are. Why do they think they should get any preferential treatment, etc. They both look way older in person. Proof that money can't buy you love.

     Side note....
A friend of mine has a friend who owns a restaurant in Montana. "Babs" and Brolin came in to eat, wait was going to be 30+ minutes. She pulled  the"Do you know who I am?" crap and the owner, a veteran, said he did and she'd have to wait like everyone else. They stormed out! I'm sure there was applause!

All I know. Happy Thursday. Nuff said. Ciao.
