Rain! ~ Cats & Vacuums ~ Corn on the Cob ~ Gail and Chuck & Linda ~ Chorizo w/ Soba Noodles ~ Son & Daughter Day

Good 54ยบ foggy (?) morning.

Yesterday afternoon Ashland and parts of South Medford were getting hit by hail. Pear growers are worried, as the hail scars the fruit. We got rain, about 10-15 minutes of hard rain. Nice, but the wind was still blowing the fires.  Took this about 3:15pm just before the rain started....

Here is the latest fire info from the So. Cal fires.... from my friend Joan in Palm Dessert.


This is a riot... my friend Dee Yellin sent it .... Cats! OMG.
Yesterday I had the vacuum out, Bruiser was eating, so I took the nozzle and just put it at the end of his tail.... just enough to make it wiggle...he did nothing, just kept eating!


Yesterday was a "putter" day. Laundry, vacuuming (ugh), dusting.......


I posted this a year ago today.... still some mouth wateringly good ideas...
Also, I like to mix taco seasoning with mayonnaise as a spread on cooked corn .. or mix in hot sauce, or chili sauce, or pesto, or add taco seasoning to butter and mix well ... use to slather on cooked corn. Sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese. Get out of your "butter only on corn" rut!
A birthday today ... friend Gail Harris, wife of Just Plain Bruce Harris (LASD Ret) is celebrating her special day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAIL!!!
And, Patty & Cliff's son Chuck and his bride Linda are celebrating their anniversary today. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!!
The Bruise..... people have been asking about him... he's good, went on one of his treks and came back.

Son and Daughter Day

                       (Kristen and Brian)

Son and Daughter Day is a day to spend with your children. After all, your son and daughter are the joy of your life. We hope that everyone reading this has the opportunity in their life to see these joys born and raised happily, and successfully. Today is a great day to spend with your son and daughter. It's not a day of gift giving....except for the gift of time. If your son and daughter are still young and live at home with you, be ever aware that time goes by quickly. So, spend as much of today and everyday in their company.
