Bruiser ~ Socks for Heroes ~ Gifts ~ Shopping ~ Jennifer ~ Football

Good 33º foggy morning. Supposed to be in the 70º's for the next few days. Was absolutely beautiful yesterday!
My Bruiser headed off towards the trees yesterday afternoon when I left for the market. He didn't come home all night. Worry worry worry. He hasn't done this for a few months and it breaks my heart.   :o(    I HATE it when he takes off!!! Then someone up there was listening to me and he came home at 6:45 this morning. WHEW....... My baby boy is home! YES!
"10-14" ... no code for that.
I donate to Socks for Heroes, based in San Clemente. They send socks to our Marines. Here is a picture of the latest shipment going to the post office....
Their site is San Clemente Marine Corps Support Group, headed by Jim & Carla Hogan whose son, LCPL
Donald Hogan who was killed in the line of duty and was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross. KIA 8-26-2008. RIP Donald. Thanks Jim and Carla for all you do! If you would like to read about this group and/or donate:

Saturday when the stump grinding guys were here, PJ came by with a pumpkin and some mums for babysitting her cats while she and Dave were at the coast with Patty and Cliff. Beautiful! Thank you PJ!!
She also gave me a darling dish towel...
....and she brought over some "gifts" that Tom and Debbie had bought for me when they were in Alaska recently...

The one on the left is swizzle sticks with petrified moose poop on the top... It says on the package "Do not eat and keep out of reach of children". Hmmm.... The other is "Alaska Wilderness Perfume"... 'aromatic perfume capsules'... moose poop! LOL. Thanks, I think, Debbie!!!!

Yesterday I went shopping and found some interesting stuff... Oh boy, Blueberry Muffin and Jelly Donut flavored coffees! Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce. AND... Roasted Honey Nut peanut butter. OMG it's soooooooooooo good!!!
After I finished my shopping I went over to Jennifer's house. Her friend Erika was there and Mike showed up ... the two of them dug up a couple of Quaking Aspen trees for Erika to take home. Jennifer has a big riverfront property and LOTS of trees! We watched some of the 9er's game. Tried to help her with her computer, but she has an Apple and it's Greek to me! So we had some wine and chatted. She gave me some of her crockpot soup (chicken beans and other stuff) home and I had it for dinner. YUMMMMMM!!!!! Awesome Jennie! Thanks!!! Sorry, no pictures, but Heaven Moody and Keeper were their beautiful and charming selves. Next time!
Football yesterday:
The Lambs did well! Yes, the Raiders lost! Sorry Tootie, your Jets lost. :o(    Billy I see your Sea Chickens did good too, but your Bills didn't. Jeannie's 9ers did great! AND my Patriots slid by! Whoa.  Tonight Brian's Colts and Cliff's Chargers play.
All I know. Happy Monday. Nuff said. Off to make some Jelly Donut coffee! Ciao.
