Good 44º (wow, cold!) somewhat clearer morning. I even saw some stars last night! Fires still going like mad, but winds must be blowing the smoke somewhere else! Nice for a change, but it will probably all be back soon. Picture taken at 6:30am....
The fire near Glendale Or in Douglas County has burned 28,000 acres! The fires down here, near Galice, 3700 acres, and Cave Junction, 2000 acres.
Some parts of the river have been closed.
This from Deewayne Honneee P-berger:
WIFE: "There is trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor."
HUSBAND: "Water in the carburetor? That's ridiculous."
WIFE: "I tell you the car has water in the carburetor."
HUSBAND: "You don't even know what a carburetor is. I'll check it. Where is the car?"
WIFE: "In the pool." :o)
I want on of these!!!
How cool would this be when you have visitors! Trouble is they probably only make them in the UK. If anyone knows where they are made in the USofA...let me know! I'm gettin' one!
Breakfast yesterday was good! I made some coffee using Turkish coffee (got it in Turkey when I was there... keep airtight and it lasts) and added in some of the new Bailey's Vanilla Brown Sugar coffee creamer. YOWSA!
Then cut up some tomato and added spoonfuls of Philly Spinach-Artichoke Spread.... salt and pepper.
I can't tell you how much I LOVE scrambled eggs with mayonnaise..... just a spoonful with two eggs all mixed up. I am crazy about the new Best Foods Balsamic mayo!!!
Then add in some garlic powder, pepper-orange seasoning
and cilantro. OMGOOOOD!!!!
Three special birthdays today.... my pal Erika's hubby Spencer is celebrating. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SPENCE!!!

.....and I have designated the 2nd of August as Bruiser's birthday. I first saw him in 2008 in about March or April hunting in my pasture and seeking shelter in the barn by going under a stall door. So today is Bruiser's 5th birthday. He has taken over! LOL.
Looking for pictures of Bruiser I found this one of a crash in front of Dave and PJ's house in 2008 on 8-2 !!! Welcome to our curve in the road!!

So.... I am at the store and these new Lay's Chips jump out at me...The Lay's guy was stocking shelves and I asked him about the Sriracha flavor. He said they "are very hot". Ok then. Bought some, along with the Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor. Then made the mistake of opening the Sriracha while sitting having wine in front of the TV. Next thing I know, the bag is EMPTY! OMG, they are SOOOOOOOOO good!!! Haven't tried the other one yet. A little afraid I'll eat that whole bag too. At least I bought the small bags!!!
Ok, for you Grants Pass folks...here is the DEAL of the day...
Rosso's has GOOD food!
All I know. TGIF. Nuff said. Ciao.
