Martin ~ Linda ~ Blondie's Bistro ~ Hachi

Good 45º foggy morning. Predictions are for partly cloudy and 66º. Rained hard on and off all day yesterday.

Martin came over yesterday morning and stacked the huge pile of wood he had dropped off a couple weeks ago.
He also cut up the stump, in the pouring rain, cut that wood, and stacked it. Cleaned up my wood storage area. Will come back and take care of the raised beds and trim up grapevines, etc. Hard worker!


Linda arrived yesterday about 2-ish. She ran into a lot of rain on the way. We went to Grants Pass, I introduced her to Jennifer at the Kitchen Company and then we went to Blondie's for early dinner.

Linda had the shrimp scampi and I had the chicken picatta .... both SO GOOD!!!



We came home, got comfy in our chairs, poured some wine and watched a movie Nancy Perry loaned me... Hachi ... A Dog Tale. About an Akita puppy shipped from Japan and found in the train station in the states by Richard Gere, a professor. Touching!
Then we watched Chicago Fire, one of my favs. ( ) Linda kept saying, "Wow!". LOL. Firefighting is not something I'd want to do!!!
