Electric Bill ~ Joke ~ Ronald Reagan BBQ

Good 53ยบ morning. Gonna be another hot one!

The electric bill came. Every time it is presented I am thankful we had the Mitsubishi AC/Heat installed. That was in 2004 or 5. Cost was $7000. My bill for this month, running the AC constantly, was only $121.00. Everything here is electric.... besides the fridge, freezer, stove, etc... so is the well pump. In order to get water it has to run. The water is free, but it takes electricity to get it. This was a good investment! It has paid for itself.

There are three of these room, dining room, and on the stairwell. No duct work. YES!

Joke: (Thanks Carolyn Taylor .. wife of Ollie, ret. LASD)

On the first day of school, the children brought gifts for their teacher. The supermarket manager's daughter brought the teacher a basket of assorted fruit. The florist's son brought the teacher a bouquet of flowers. the candy store owner's daughter gave the teacher a pretty box of candy. Then the liquor store owner's son brought up a big, heavy box. The teacher lifted it up and noticed it was leaking a little bit. She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger tip and tasted it.

"Is it wine?" she guessed.

"No", the boy said. She tasted another drop and asked, "Champagne?"

"No", said the little boy ..... "It's a puppy."

Yesterday was the Ronald Reagan BBQ. It was held at the Historic Hanley Farm between Central Point and Jacksonville...


Good crowd.
Our next Governor (hopefully!), Dennis Richardson was there with his lovely wife Cathy...

... and our Medford Representative Sal Esquivel
I had a picture taken with Dennis, but it didn't come out so good, so I painted it!
Our JCRW President, Ruth, and her husband Shelly and all the ladies did a wonderful job...lots of work...
Laraine and her daughters... Dawna, Laraine, and Denise
Phyllis and Leanne....
Oh and by the way Phyllis, NO Jeannie is not my daughter! Aaaarughhh.... now she's going to be calling me "mom"!!!

Yes, Jeannie and Bill were there too...
A chicken coop had a bunch of noisy roosters and this peacock sitting on top... he wasn't afraid of me... just sat there and preened...

Food was cooked and served by Yummy's of Klamath Falls..
A corn salsa, salad, chicken and/or pork, beans, corn, and this super sweet hot awesome orange/chili sauce I put on my corn... AMAZINGLY GOOD every bite!
Wine was donated for every table..
And we had great entertainment! Boy, they kept the toes tappin'!
There was this lady and her hat! She's running for some office, can't remember what, but she was "different" honey!
I don't think I'd vote for her..... she said she drove her convertible corvette to the BBQ and admittedly broke the speed laws doing so.

I donated a basket for the raffle .... red wine, white wine, "Liquid Happiness" wine glass, "Wine Goddess" napkins, pasta, my marinara sauce, and a roll of Obama toilet paper! (Don't get your panties in a knot you Democrat friends of mine..... this was a Republican event! So, everyone thought it was funny!)
Susan won it.....
A good day. Hopefully we raised a lot of money for our education fund.

There was some historical stuff this date and births... you can go to the archives on the left for those facts if you are interested....

All I know. Catch up day. I put the trash out every Sunday and it's time to do that again. I can't believe how fast these days fly by!!! Have a good one. Nuff said. Ciao.

Bad Poetry Day

There was a young girl with a curl
She could not get to unfurl
Try as she might
It stayed curled up tight
So she thumbed her nose and let it twirl.

(Sorry.... pretty bad!! But... that was the point.)
