CHIP Rescues Dog ~ Bruiser ~ Deer ~ Terri ~ Vegetarian Meal

Good 37º very foggy morning.


10-2 is a radio code for "receiving well".

Speaking of police codes.... here is a SUPER video of a CHP rescuing a little dog on the freeway. You will enjoy, but you will cry, albet a happy cry!!! Thanks Patty for sharing this!! xoxo

My nutty cat... Jeannie gave him a gift the other day. I think he likes napping on it more than playing with it! Here are two super short videos of the Bruise in action....
(LOL, this cat in the ad looks like Bruise!)

Speaking of "nutty cat" he takes over my desk.... can't use the keyboard....
"What ya doin' Mom? Can't you just pet me???"

I forgot to post, but the other day when Linda and I were leaving here and heading to Jacksonville these two deer, mom and baby, were down at the end of my drive. I just sat there and let them do their thing so I wouldn't scare them and they might run to the road.

They came towards my car and then headed off in the woods.


... and from my friend Erika and several other sources:
The Quote of the Decade:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006


Another LASD retiree, in the news.... Terri Prim who was the station secretary at Avalon Station is celebrating today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERRI!!!

Since yesterday was World Vegetarian Day...
my dinner last night was an artichoke (drizzle on lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder, and sea salt...cook 50 minutes... I serve mine with BF mayonnaise.)
....and I sauteéd some mushrooms, added in the zucchini cakes and some grape tomatoes.
Made a sauce of mayo, honey mustard, avocado oil and drizzled that over the concoction!
REALLY tasty and good, but the zuc cakes were mushy. I might make some mashed potatoes and mash them into the mix. We'll see. But, won't be buying them again.
All I know. Happy Hump Day. Nuff said. Ciao.

"Name Your Car Day"
Dot and  Rusty
Ok, Bri, you have a new truck, what's ya gonna call it? I'm going to have to give this some thought. My big black truck need something fitting, but kind!
Lots of people name their cars. People with big boats, name their boat, and we think nothing of it. So, why not name your car or truck!?
Every car has character and personality. We spend a lot of time in our cars, and caring for them. So, its only fitting that each car gets its own name.
Selecting a name should be made with care and consideration. Give your car a name that properly reflects its character. What you name you car should be a proper reflection of its character and performance, and your desires for your car. In general, guys names are for guys' cars, and girl names are for the cars that you ladies drive. Aside from that, selection of a name is wide open. But, be have feelings, too.
Here are some of our thoughts in selecting an appropriate name for your car:
Don't select wimpy names. That might give your car a personality complex and it will perform accordingly.
Do give a strong, aggressive name to sports cars and cars with powerful engines.
Sleek, sexy feline-like cars savor names that begin with "lady".
Old junkers are proud just to be around. You can call them just about anything. Try "Tramp", or "Old Yeller", "Old Blue".
Pick names to reflect your personality.
"Pickemup" trucks must have country names.
Don't give common names (like Joe, Mike or Sue)  to luxury cars. They beam over names like Reginald, Archibald, and Crystal.
