Smoke ~ Plumber ~ Electrician ~ Hummers ~ Crab Stirfry

Good 56º deathly smokey morning! We have a chance of thunderstorms on the way. The pressure dropped last night but it's going up as we speak. The smoke yesterday afternoon....
...and it was 97º. Today is supposed to be hotter... ugh.


Yesterday my plumber friend, Mike Artoff, was here. He put a new faucet on outside. It was old and leaking. He also fixed the leak in the kitchen sink. Thanks Mike!
(Mike with his dad a few years back...)

Later in the afternoon Jake Wardel, electrician, was here. He took the light down off the tree in front so Chris can come back and take down the tree.

Jake will be back and install a pole for the light. Having one in the front yard keeps the bears away!! Besides I can see what's out there! Like a street light, sort of. There is one on each end of the barn and up at the pump house. They come on automatically when it gets dark and off when it's light.

This came from Tally Huntoon (Wife of Spencer LACOFD ret, Wilson High W'63) ... fascinating.... How hummingbirds eat...


Last night dinner was stirfry. I like the fake crab (I know Gator, the real thing is better, but this is a good price and tastes good!). I sauteéd the mushrooms with some green peppers (from Jeannie's garden), added the crab with a diced tomato (seeds and liquid center removed) ... added in the noodles and sauce mix. YUMMMMMM!!!!!


Today it's an eye doctor appointment. I think I need an upgrade on my glasses. We'll see what the doc says. Besides I need to get my driving glass repaired, as Dude decided to chew on the temple on one side. Sigh...

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