Rain ~ Dude ~ Gandolfini ~ Sgt. Berghahl ~ Bruiser ~ Secret Government ~ Old Marine

Good 48ยบ foggy gloomy morning.
Yesterday we got rain starting about 10am and it rained HARD on and off most of the day. Ended with almost 1/2". Every time I was going to go somewhere the rain came down, so I just stayed home! I did manage to get out to get the mail.... makes Dude happy to run along with the golf cart.....

BTW, his dad, Dave, stopped by yesterday ...delivering a package via UPS, and visited with Dude for a bit. Dude was happy to see him.

Wow, James Gandolfini died. He was only 51.

And an American soldier, Sgt. Bowe Berghahl, has been held by the Taliban for the last 4 years and we have done NOTHING?????? Kiss my kazoo! Our government sucks! Get that man home!!!! Don't make me come to Washington DC!

PICTURE of the day.... LOL, got this from Mike and Nan... this is soooo Bruiser!!!

So, almost... Bruiser was napping on the printer! He does sometimes walk from my desk to my chest! Or he sleeps on the keyboard!

Got this from a couple of sources... first from Joan my cruise ship traveling pal... This is our "secret government" at work.... watch to the end!  :o)  First you are worried then you laugh!
And then my friend Gracie Elliott (LASD ret) sent this:
Why Old Marines have trouble getting a job.....
Job Interview Personnel Manager: "What do you consider your greatest weakness ?"
Old Marine: "Honesty"
Personnel Manager: "Really, I don't think honesty is a weakness"
Old Marine: "I don't give a shit what you think"
And then this from Jon Austin (LASD ret)
Since yesterday was Dry Martini Day I made one. It was ok. I am more fond of vodka martinis... dirty! Gin to me is better with tonic and a twist!
And by 4:30 in the afternoon we had some more interesting clouds...
