Full Moon ~ Elk ~ Tree Bruise ~ Musashi w/ Nancy


 

Good 42º clear full moon morning.....



Woke up too early. Dark. Had hot tea. Then noticed something out of the corner of my eye..... an elk! In my front yard. A cow all alone. DANG if I didn't leave my big camera in the car! Sheeeesh! So took some pictures with my little Kodak...
 
Enough of this, so went out and got the Canon from the car.


 
I posted two videos (short 30-40 seconds) on Youtube....
 
 
The Bruise went out with me and he was showing off his tree climbing skills...



 
Yesterday I picked up Nancy (Ace Dave's bride!) and we went to Grants Pass to Musashi for lunch....
 
When we got out of my car this guy was coming along with his bicycle and stopped and asked "Who is the Marine?" (USMC sticker on back window of truck) I said, "My husband and son." He then bragged about being in the Navy, "CSI at Pendleton". Showed me his USN belt buckle. I told him my son's last name is Pendleton and he was at Camp Pendleton too. This guy thought that was great, we high-fived, and he went on his way.
 
Tim is the Sushi Chef at Musashi. Yeah, a Japanese chef at a Japanese restaurant!
Our little waitress was Mijo (not sure of spelling) born in Japan. She is darling.
 
Nancy and I had the 'Sashimi Bento' ... fresh sashimi (tuna, salmon, yellowtail), shrimp and vegetable tempura, pot stickers, and rice. YUMMMM! And cold saké. We had a green salad prior, the the BEST Asian dressing! You could just drink the dressing!
Happy belated Birthday Nancy!
Great place. We want to go back. We were early, why nobody else is there. Lovely decor and tables for 4 or a crowd! A lady sat down next to us, Jennifer, and we got to talking. She works at the Kitchen Store in town and we all hit it off. Plan on a girl's day with Jennifer soon.

Historically this date...
1296Battle of Dunbar: The Scots are defeated by Edward I of England.
Dunbar is a family name, Mom's side, and King Edward I invaded Scotland because he was pissed that King John Balliol refused to support the English military action in France. He was a dork anyway, but caused battlefield losses. The Dunbar Castle is the remnants of one of the most mighty fortresses in Scotland. What it did look like and today the ruins...
