Rain ~ Barry & Miss Bonnie ~ Tucker's Pizza Party ~ Drummer Jack

Good 55º rainy morning. Yesterday we got a flood of rain and about 1/4" here. It's climbing.  Today, unfortunately the rain will continue and it is fund raiser day called Ride the Rogue where about 1000 cyclists will be riding ...
to raise money for the Greenway....

2pm yesterday...


There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very, very good.
But when she was bad.........
She got a fur coat, jewels, a waterfront condo, and a sports car.

Tucker wanted to have pizza for his birthday dinner so we met at Wild River Pizza in Grants Pass.
The parking lot was a lake from the rain (I didn't take this yesterday, it was on Google!), fortunately I found a place that was high and dry to park! Dinner was good.... service was great. Come to find out after I got home last night, the waitress we had, Keri, was a daughter of my BFF's friend. I know Keri's mom, Sherry. The "Mushroom Madness" hamburger I had was awesome. Just finished the other half for breakfast.

"MUSHROOM MADNESS Sautéed mushrooms,
Swiss cheese & all the fixings 11Our burgers start with a hand-formed 1/2 lb Angus beef patty grilled to perfection. Served
on our fresh baked house-made rolls with aioli dressing & spicy mustard, lettuce, tomato,
onion & pickle. Bread choice: White, Onion Cheese or Peasant Bread.
Comes with your choice of pub fries, house salad, pasta salad or cup of soup" OMG!
