LE/Fire Lunch ~ The Girls ~ A Year Ago Today

Good (I can't believe this) 51º morning! Seems strange after the 30º mornings we started having. Pressure dropping so rain might be on the way.


Yesterday was the Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon at our Grants Pass Elk's lodge.
Along with a bunch of others... I had a lunchtime libation...
One of the retired LAPD guys, Walter Smith, was celebrating his 92nd birthday! Go Walt! Here he is with the lady who drives for him, Carolyn Henderson. Carolyn was a dispatcher at our LASD radio room... I think she also worked at San Dimas Station.

After lunch Dee and Jeannie showed up and along with Tammy we all had a glass of wine...
LOL, not the most ideal background for a picture.... but, alas, it's the lodge!


Tonight is football...........................


The following is what I put on my blog last year on this date..
The Day After
I woke in the middle of the night and thought .... reversing Moochelle's statement, 'for the first time in my life I am not proud of my country'. I feel as if I have been punched in the gut and stabbed in the back.
The arrogance and lies, personal first family exorbitant spending and vacations, and socialism will continue 4 more years....and probably beyond, because the voter base is now so corrupt it's unintelligible.
The lefty 'let the gov'ment run our lives, take our money, make those who work pay, and perpetuate welfare' liberals are dancing and rejoicing. Just think, if Romney had won there would be riots in the streets and anarchy because the 'gots my hand out and will never work and Romney would take away my food stamps' adam henrys would be propelled into getting jobs and forced to pay their own way! Republicans riot? No. Democrats riot? Yes. Duh.


Class with these two? Not!
I can't believe it that so many are so stupid. WTF????
And if you don't like what I have to say about it, f**k off. Drop me from your email list, unfriend me on FB, and stay out of my face with your liberal idiosyncrasies! I am a dyed in the wool Republican believing welfare is only for those in "NEED" and everyone should work and just because you have money and earned it by working, making jobs, and paying your share you are not a 'bad guy'!!! Business owners are heroes. Our military are heroes and should be treated as such, with free medical and leaders who don't give out military secrets and a budget to keep them and us safe. Get it Washington!
God help us!!!

Dunce Day (Duh, figures.......)
Dunce Day celebrates the term "Dunce" and dunce caps. Today marks the death (November 8, 1308) of medieval scholar Duns Scotus of Duns, Scotland.
Dunce Day is all about learning. So, lets get right to it and learn about dunce caps and the creator of dunce caps. Duns Scotus of Duns, Scotland was a medieval scholar. Perceptions of his views ranged from brilliant to less than complimentary. Duns Scotus believed that cone shaped hats increased learning potential. He believed knowledge would flow from the point of the cap, down and into the head of the wearer, making that person smarter. About all this accomplished over time, was the perception of a person wearing a dunce cap to be...... a dunce. There was a positive side to his use of dunce caps. It motivated the wearer to learn more, so he could be rid of the cap. Scholar critics of his work derived the term "dunce" from his name and place of birth.
