Don't Walk Sign ~ Nanno ~ Gracie & Jack

Good 45º 92% humidity morning. 80% rain predicted for today. Rained on and off yesterday. Nice.

Yesterday at 6pm....

I was watching Restaurant Impossible last night on the Food Channel. Robert Irvine is a chef who goes into failing restaurants and works miracles. Fun show. Anyway, a commercial came on for Herdez new cooking sauces. I have used Herdez salsas and sauces for years but cracked up when this female with no Spanish accent at all pronounced it "Air-dees". You Spanish speakers out there... shouldn't it be "Hare-diz"??? Oh well.... whatever...



And while I'm blabbing..... when I was very young my mother taught me..."If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" !  Bottom line, if you don't like something on my blog, keep it to yourself. I don't care. Let me reiterate... I DON'T CARE.


Yesterday I neglected to offer my condolences to the Raiders (yeah, right!) Go Broncos!!!


And don't forget tomorrow night..


OMG, Laura (Vincent) Virant... former Temple City neighbor, posted this on her FB page....The Don't Walk sign has become vulgar! ... or opinionated!   LOL
My pal Linda Nantz will be here today for a few days. Yes! We will be dining at Blondie's, some home cooked, and movies and popcorn in our comfy chairs!
Today was my grandmother's birthday. Her name was Isabelle Dunbar Mills. She was born in Glasgow Scotland in 1872. We called her 'Nanno'. She was fun, so nice, a great cook (oh those shortbread bars!!! and Scotch Cherry Cake!). I think she's the only person in the family who ended up shorter than me! She passed away in 1964. Here she is in 1958 with me, my older sister's daughter MaryAnn, Marion's son Andy, and older sister's Nancy.
Today is also the 19th wedding anniversary of two very special people... Gracie and Jack Elliott. Jack retired LASD and Gracie ret LASD SR. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS! (BTW, looked for a picture of your two at the Laughlin thing, but Ike said you were on the list but never had your picture taken! Shame on you!!! If you go next year, get one taken!) xox
