Yesterday since Tucker was sick I didn't attend the baseball game. Went shopping at Safeway. Lots of goodies on sale.. one of my favs... Progresso Lite Soup. Yes! And skinless/boneless chicken thighs on sale. YEAH. Got some in the crockpot cooking for Maggie as we speak. On the way up my drive there was a covey of quail...
And watching me watching them was a ground squirrel.....
This morning the elk were back.... apparently walking out in front of the house when Dude started barking at them and they ran up the hill....
And another of the shortest books of all time.....
By Rev Jesse Jackson & Rev Al Sharpton
Interesting... Twinkies will be back~!
Ok, how stupid is California? I'll let you read this for yourself... Apparently to the Dems in California, being a citizen of this country is not important! Tell that to our releatives who came here, took the tests, and swore their allegience!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SACRAMENTO, California (AP) -- The California Assembly passed a bill on Thursday that would make the state the first in the nation to allow non-citizens who are in the country legally to serve on jury duty.
Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont, said his bill, AB1401, would help California widen the pool of prospective jurors and help integrate immigrants into the community. The bill passed 45-25 largely on a party-line vote in the Democratic-controlled Assembly and will move on to the Senate. One Democrat - Assemblyman Adam Gray, of Merced - voted no, while some other Democrats did not vote.
If you have never seen this Transformer

After I got home from shopping Dave called. He had the sprayer ready to test. He'd taken the flat tire to the tire store and had a new inner tube put in it. He cleaned off the connectors to the fuse and it started right up! YES. Thanks Dave. You are a BIG help and a good friend! .... until you are better paid! (check is in the mail!)

Came back home and dinner was a mini meatloaf stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese, drizzled with sweet hot chili sauce, and rice with veggies.

Today my friend Liz Duncan (Sgt. LASD) is celebrating her daughter Savanah's 5th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAVANAH!! Pretty girl!!!
