Some Drizzle Lots of Wind ~ Sad Cat ~ Mini Squash & Shrimp ~ Cherry Cobbler

Good 48º somewhat cloudy morning.

Yesterday evening the clouds were threatening looking, but no rain, just wind. Had a very small amount of rain yesterday. Don't think it even showed up on my rain gauge.

From Life's Simple Pleasures:
"When a friend enjoys something you recommended."

Got this from Tammy and a couple other people. If you have or love cats, this will put a smile on your face...
( I LOVE this cat's face!)


Historically this date....
1974Police in Los Angeles, California, raid the Symbionese Liberation Army's headquarters, killing six members, including Camilla Hall.

....and a bunch of other stuff happened...

Births this date include...
1897Odd Hassel, Norwegian chemist, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1981)
  .... he's only here because of his very strange name!

1936Dennis Hopper, American actor and director (d. 2010)

1956Sugar Ray Leonard, American boxer and actor

1962Craig Ferguson, Scottish comedian, actor, and television host

Went running errands all over GP yesterday.... DMV for new registration for the motorcycle we gave Aaron (he lost registration!), beauty supply store for beauty supplies (lol), Wally Mart for coconut oil, Safeway for groceries, and to drop off vacuum cleaner bags to Leah to go with the vacuum cleaner she bought from me. I did even manage to find shrimp at Safeway from the USofA!!! I won't eat that stuff from Thailand or Viet Nam!! No way.


So, dinner was mini squashes sauteéd in infused EVOO and shrimp cooked in a variety of spices...chives, New Orleans Style Seafood seasoning, garlic powder, and Weber Roasted Garlic seasoning...

Then I added some Sweet Hot Chili sauce....
...and a couple dollops of Ricotta cheese....


All I know. Nuff said. TGIF. Ciao.
