Good 52º gonna be another scorcher day! Hit 103º yesterday. Yes did my share of both whining and wine!!
Today is a humbling day. Memory kicks in to that horrible tragic morning and all the visuals on the TV. Unspeakable. I was wrapped in a blanket in front of the TV all day. It still makes me so sad to the point of being teary-eyed.
My friend Marie Vincent (former Temple City neighbor) sent the following link. With today in mind and what happened on 9-11-2001 watch this and remember...
.... and so since it was the hatred of Muslims for our country and all people who aren't of their ilk, my friend Charlean (Gottesman) Allen (LASD ret) sent me the following:
"Obama says to create harmony by learning Arabic. We might as well get on the bandwagon. The current administration wants us to learn more about Muslims and accept them into our culture. So, I'm making a sincere effort to communicate with our Muslim friends and learn Arabic for the sake of 'cultural diversity'. This is my first attempt....."
Today is the birthday of a couple of special people... my friend (former LASD SR and Choirboy) Jim Hoffman. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM!! And my dental hygienist and friend, Liz O'Conner, from Bright Now Dental in Grants Pass. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIZ!!! See you next Monday!!

Yesterday I went to Bill and Jeannie's to celebrate her birthday. I had made her a lemon cake and filled a basket with her favorite things.. .frogs, Paydays, caramels, Bob's Seasoning Salt, and got her some car mats for her new ride with frogs on them!
Jeannie made jalapeño poppers with the jalapeños from her garden. They were SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!! We had wine and chatted. Chaka was a doll....
And when I was leaving, Jeannie gave me "poppers to go" and a cantaloupe from their garden. Will cut that today!
In the trunk of my car were some hats, I gave Jeannie one...she modeled it! Safari.......

Hot Crossed Buns Day
Hot cross buns predate the arrival of Christianity - the cross originally representing the pagan sun wheel. Queen Elizabeth I converted the buns to Christianity and declared that the buns may only be eaten at funerals, Easter and Christmas.
