Happy Throw Back Thursday.... Brian little league 1983

Got this from Ike Saben (LASD ret) and it has the most interesting photos of dogs I have ever seen... Thanks Ike!


Yesterday was haircut day and take Jennifer's artichokes and avocados from Costco to her since she works and couldn't join us. I had an interesting chat with a couple in Safeway. She had worked in the pet food industry and told me a lot about pet food and what not to buy. He had been a cop in S. Carolina. Received a bad injury (broken back) in a fight during a family disturbance call. He retired and they moved to Oregon. He was funny. Looked like an old hippie with a pony tail and gold necklaces! Really nice people though and I enjoyed talking to them. Wow, but the transition from cop to hippie was something!

This was the news a year ago today... and it's not getting any better!
"The news today is horrendous. 5 teens killed in Orange County in horrible car wreck, man puts his baby in the freezer because she was crying, a step-father in LA stabs an 11 year old boy to death, Justin Bieber "stoned" and driving reckless AGAIN. The amazing story was the baby found alive in the sewer pipe in China! Flushed down the pipe a new born. Unbelievable!"

Good morning!

Great pictures of Brian and Kristen. I don't think Brian has changed a bit.
Sad to remember a year ago in the news, and you are right, not getting any better. Very scary!!!
That dressing you bought yesterday looked really good. Did it have a big cilantro taste to it? I will have to get some.
Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, two of the best!
Off to start my day. Have a good one yourself and chat later. xo
