Frost ~ Donna the Jockey ~ April/Mary&Gil ~ Salmon&Eggs ~ Willie ~ Slipper ~ Cary's

Good 33º ice on barn roof morning! Welp, turned on the heater! The moon is out.......

The wind turbines are running in the vineyard up the road. NOISY! Sound like helicopters and one is landing in the yard!
This April/May weather is the reason you don't put your frost sensitive (tomatoes) in the ground before the 1st of June!

Yesterday I wrote Donna Walsh and asked her about her mom. She told me, Joan Barclay, was in about 65 movies...

Not only was her mom famous, but Donna has her own acclaim right up there too .... one of the first female jockeys! Wow, Donna, you are amazing.

Funny... me! Ha ha ha... eat like a bird!

Yesterday afternoon I met up with Jeannie and Bill at Shenanigans for cocktails. Dawn, the bartendress is such fun and she was happy to see me! Our dear friend from the Elks, Willie, was there too! Sure good to see him.
This one gentleman, also an Elk, was there...Curt, and he was buying all of our drinks! Nice man. But, no, don't get any ideas! The music was raging and made you want to dance......I have pictures, but not for publication. Jeannie and Cathy were rockin' out!!! Shenanigans is a very friendly place and will go back.

Dude is so funny.... now when I go away and leave he and Maggie in the house...he gets one of my slippers and brings it out to the living room. I guess he lays by it... has my scent, so he can remember his 'mom'!!!

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