May Day ~ TBT ~ Sami ~ Dan Wassom Family ~ Chocolate Parfait

Good 43º morning. Yesterday we hit 89º and in Grants Pass a record of 92º. "They" say it's gonna be cooler today.
Sorry for the line in the photo, was having a real bad time with the photoshop and AOL this morning. Uncooperative, both of them! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......................
And the 5 deer in the pasture were watching me....

Happy May Day.....

Happy Throw Back Thursday....

Here is an update Trish posted on her FB page from her nephew's family.. Because he was in the Air National Guard and also served in Iraq... his funeral today will be military .....
An update from the Dan Wassom family:
"After receiving so many questions of concern I wanted to update everyone with what I know. Suzanne left the hospital this evening and will soon be reunited with the girls, who are doing as well as can be expected. They will be staying with family in the area. For those of us that knew Dan, we are not at all surprised at the details surrounding his tragic death. He was a rare caliber of man that will truly be missed, evidenced by the shear outpouring of support we have received in just 2 days. Thank you again to all that have taken the time to offer condolences, money, support, and even a home and vehicle. Through this dark time, when we might question the world around us, I personally have been touched by the kindness and compassion of each and everyone of you, and hope others too can take some solace in this.
For those who would like to see it, I have included a link to NBC's coverage tonight on the Nightly News. Please use your own judgment in viewing. It was well done, but may be to soon for some of us."

Yesterday I weed-eated, mowed, cleaned porch furniture. Exhausted myself. Today I will probably do the same. Patty and Cliff called. They were at the coast and it was 80º there! Can't escape it.... in a few days it will be cool again and possibility of rain. You know I had my truck washed again!!!
