National Anthem ~ Joke ~ TBT ~ Sideways ~ Elk ~ Nutty Bruiser ~ Kahlua Recipes

Good 41º cloudy still no rain yet morning. I guess the CA coast is preparing for a lot of rain. Drizzled 10 or 6 drops yesterday morning. That was all.

Ok, this is GREAT.... this little girl sings the National Anthem and the sound system takes a dump so she can't finish... but the audience jumped right in and sang the end of the Anthem! Wow. I love Americans! REAL Americans... those who CARE about our country!!!

This joke from my high school pal, Jim Harper... OMG! Be careful what you text or email....

A man received the following text from his neighbor:
I'm so sorry Bob. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess. I have been tapping your wife, day and night when you're not around. In fact, more than you. I do not get any at home, but that's no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest
apology with my promise that it won't happen again.

The man, anguished and betrayed, went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun, and without a word, shot his wife and killed her.

A few moments later, a second text came in:
I hate autocorrect!  I meant "wifi", not "wife"

Happy Throwback Thursday...   1977   (LOL!)

Historically this date...
1951 – The Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution, limitingPresidents to two terms, is ratified.
.... lets see how long it will be before the baboon in the White House gets that changed to unlimited!

1964 – The government of Italy asks for help to keep the Leaning Tower of Pisa from toppling over.

2010 – An earthquake measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale strikes central parts of Chile leaving over 500 victims, and thousands injured. The quake triggered a tsunami which struck Hawaii shortly after.

And births this date include....
1930 – Joanne Woodward, American actress

1932 – Elizabeth Taylor, British-American actress (d. 2011)

1934 – Ralph Nader, American author, activist, and political figure

1934 – Van Williams, American actor
Williams said goodbye to Hollywood around 1970 and followed his interests into a job in the actual world of law enforcement, spending 25 years as a reserve officer with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, and also working at the San Diego Police Department and the Los Angeles Police Department.He said he formed a mountain-rescue team, taking dead and injured people out of the hills around Topanga Canyon, and worked with a partner as a plainclothes officer on Malibu Beach."We had more felony arrests than any other team," he said.But there are some mysteries relating to Williams' second career that he will not discuss, like the seven years he spent working for the federal government."I'm not supposed to talk about that," he said.
Van was in the first academy class I was in, but because of the "strict moral code" (LOL) the department had and I was "living without the benefit of clergy" with Jerry, I was dropped until we were either not living together or married! (After the wedding nups I went back)

1980 – Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton
UGH! She didn't even have a chance!

This makes me throw up! WTF???? First they got Obummer in and now they want Bullshillary Clintoon, another one who doesn't give a shit about our military!!!!! Self-absorbed. Self-righteous.  Temperamental beeotch. They want HER for President. Haven't the Dems learned anything??????

Then of course, you know Bill Clintoon will be in the Presidential Bedroom while Bullshillary is in the Oval Office, getting his blow jobs! (Not sex! Yeah, right.) 

Five years ago today Janie Alden and I took "Mr. Big Stuff" , renamed to Sideways, to Gary and Tammy. This was the black lab found on the freeway off ramp by PJ. I kept him here for a bit, but with pending back surgery I couldn't care for another dog at the time and Tammy and Gary had lost one of theirs and wanted him. Such a lucky dog to get such a great and loving home!

This morning there were a few elk in the pasture...

Yesterday while sitting at my desk, Bruiser decided he wanted to get comfy in the shelves next to the desk... nut!

AND THEN.... while I was watching TV he got comfy on top of the entertainment center!

All I know. Happy Thursday. Nuff said. Ciao.

National Kahlua Day

Imported from Mexico (which is odd because of the name, sounds like it's from Hawaii!), Kahlua is made with Mexican-grown coffee, vanilla beans, and sugar. This thick, potent liqueur is used in popular cocktails like the Mudslide and the White Russian. But it's also used in ice cream toppings, brownies, cakes, and to baste certain meats.
I buy this Kahlua syrup... sugar free... and put it in my coffee. YUMMMM!!! (Having some right now!)

Tammy, I believe all things happen for a reason. Sometimes we don't know what and why, but Big Stuff came along at the right time for you and Gary and especially Jaco. What a bond those two have.

Yes, the Bruise certainly keeps me entertained! xoxox

What a great blog today! I love the story of SideWays. I remember this day that you took him to his forever home and parents. YOU are a very special person!

Soooo agree with you re Hil liar y. I cannot stand the thought of those two living in our WH again! Gives me the creeps! "They" say her presidency would just be a continuation of Obama's. She and Bill have always hated the military and anything resembling law enforcement. I have read the books put out by those in their SS detail. Down right disgusting the way they were treated by the Clintoons! UG!!!

Love the pics of Bruiser!!

XO Trisha

Yes, I know about Bullshillary.. a friend of Jerry's was Secret Service and worked as her 'bodyguard' when she and Bill first were in the White House. Tempermental "I'll do what I want" tude. Got the story straight from the horse's mouth! xo
