Pond-Dude ~ First Bites ~ Marion ~ Brian ~ KC & Shelly's Infuzed Express ~ Jeannie Bill & Chaka


Good 46º raining full moon morning. Be careful out there!


The kids (Maggie and Dude) and I took a golf cart ride up to the back of my property where the guys are trimming the undergrowth in the BLM. Chatted with a couple of them. Then to the pond to check it out...

 

Dude jumped out and he ran all the way back to the house. He loves doing that!

I remember taking Kristen when she was about 2 or 3 to a buffet in Pasadena often. She sat in her highchair facing the line of people coming in. I'd give her a piece of lemon and she kept the whole line entertained with her faces. Wish I had film of that~!


 
 


Two years ago this date I wrote:

And today that idiot Lohan is STILL in the news!

My heart just goes out to the folks in Joplin Missouri. What tragedy and sadness. Unbelievable destruction. I cried watching the news. Think they'll be askin' for food stamps and new TV's and trailers to live in, forever! ? I doubt it. Pathetic some of the folks in this country. Sit on their big fat asses and hold their hand out and never once do anything to contribute. Ok ok ok... off the

Yesterday I was going to have my car washed, but changed my mind. It always rains when I do that and since it was predicted for this weekend's Boatnik celebration I am holding off. Stopped in at Brian's office to take him the USMC hat and pick up VIP tickets for the Boatnik, free parking and free beer/wine tickets. Yippeeee....

 

 

 

Then to Infuzed Express.  http://www.infuzedrestaurant.com/   Shelly and KC who were part of The Mediterranean restaurant we loved so much are now operating a 'drive through' restaurant. Soon to have gazebos for outside dining...

 

Shelly and "Knotty" Gnome....

 

You can read their menu on their link. I ordered sweet potato fries, the 'Lost Coast' (salmon slider with spinach, mushrooms, garlic, tomato, red bell pepper all sauteéd in white wine), a pizza wrap with garlic 'infuzed' pesto - pepper jack cheese - bacon-chicken-& bell pepper, and cilantro potato salad. I took these treats to Bill and Jeannie's. We gobbled them down! Everything OMGOOD! Goin' back for more~!

 



Played with Chaka and took a few pictures before heading back home to my brood...

 
 

Jeannie was hiding! Their yard is so pretty and that tree is so interesting!



The 'funny' greeting at their gate..... (yes!)

 

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