Good 63º SUPER smokey morning. Worst it's been.
Never cooled off much last night. Kept AC on all night and the dogs in! Although, Mr. Bruiser didn't want to come in and is off on one of his 'adventures'. I pray he comes home soon!
We're to get t-storms, not good, hope the rain comes but not the lightening. Jeannie wrote she heard thunder already!
Very sorry to hear our friend Jo Ann Kirk's father passed away last night. RIP Joe Oddo! Jo Ann, you have our love.
Jo Ann is wife of Joe Krik, LASD ret... Lakewood Stn, Avalon. Joe Oddo ran a restaurant in Rogue River and then a pawn shop in Grants Pass.
Yesterday I had an eye doc appointment in the afternoon..
(1022 NW 6th St, Grants Pass...So. Or. Eye Care Clinic)
They took pictures of the inside of my eye through the pupil, ran all the eye tests (EFGTXZ ... can you read the bottom line?) and all that, dilated my eyes, doc checked them thoroughly and said they look great! A very slight deviation in my glasses prescription from last year... not much. Yeah!
Left there and went to Bill and Jeannie's. I took them a couple of the Jalapeño Cheesecakes I made and some banana bread. Jeannie gave me some bounty from her garden... cukes, heirloom tomatoes, her zucchini bread (that is awesome!) and some homemade pickles. YUMMMM!!!! We had wine and chatted.
Home to cook dinner.... Sabatino's Smoked Mozzarella with Artichokes and Garlic Chicken Sausage (Costco), pasta, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, onion, cheese, and Creamy Basil Pesto sauce..... (Archer Farms I get it at Target)
I sauteéd the cooked pasta with the sausage, added in the sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms, some white wine and the onion. Then the pesto sauce, and topped with cheese. OMGOOOOOD!!!!

National Lighthouse Day
The picture above is one I took at
Peggy's Cove Nova Scotia in 2008.
On this day in 1789, the U.S. Congress enacted legislation allowing the federal government control over the creation and maintenance of lighthouses. This special day evolved out of this event, and in recent years, through efforts to preserve lighthouses as an important historical symbol in America.
