Dog's Bucket ~ Bullock's Oriole ~ Lisa ~ Salmon Veggie Casserole ~ Strawberry Recipes

Good 49º foggy morning! The rain finally did show up late yeaterday...about 5:pm. We got a total of 1/4".  Warmed to 68º. Cloudy but sunny all day on and off.

This is hilarious. What a dog! LOVING his bucket! Will make you smile!
Sent by Tally and Spencer Huntoon (former Wilsonite and LACoFireDept ret). Thanks guys. Love it!

Looking outside yesterday and here is Mr. Oriole...

This bird is a Bullock's Oriole (no, not named after Sandra or the store Mother and I loved shopping in! Bullocks was by Pershing Square Garage/Park. We loved the Tea Room.

Before 1954 when Mom and Dad got the DeSoto and we'd park in the Pershing underground garage, we took the streetcar.) OK, sidetracked....

It is a boldly colored medium-size bird. It characteristically makes hanging nests in broadleafed trees and tall shrubs. In Oregon this bird is rare to fairly common. It nests along rivers and farmland. Most widespread in the southwest and northeast Oregon, and especially in Jackson County. (Taaaa daaaa) This bird eats many insects.

I have found several of the 'hanging' type nests that blew out of trees. This one has a 'fake' bird in it, hanging on a birdhouse Jennifer, Brian's wife, gave me.

This old birdcage belonged to Jerry's mom and I have several nests in it that I have found over the years.

Today is a special lady's birthday... Lisa Short (good thing she wasn't in the military, huh! SHORT, Lisa!!!) ... she is the sister of my pal Olga Duran.... (hubby Jimmy...LASD Sgt) ..... HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISA!!!!

Dinner last night was another "creation". I had some veggies in the fridge that needed to be eaten... asparagus, green beans, and shredded carrots. I put them in the frying pan with a little olive oil and some seasoning and stir fried them.

Then I added in two cans of salmon. Heated well, put in crockpot on "warm". Then stir fried some mushrooms...

All of that, along with some cream of mushroom soup and cooked noodles went into the crockpot.

I stirred it up and kept it warm until I was ready to eat.

OMGOOOOOD!!!!! Salmon Vegetable Casserole!

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

Love the video of Charcoal! What a great name for the black dog.
