Weather ~ TBT ~ Veggie/Chicken Salad ~ Billi

Good 60º morning. Cloudy.... supposed to be cooler today. We'll see. Can't believe anything those weather peeps tell us!

TBT..... LOL, 1974. Brian got new he took them to bed with him! Happy camper!!! ♥ This picture ALWAYS makes me smile!

1941 – Holocaust: under instructions from Adolf HitlerNazi official Hermann Göring, orders SS General Reinhard Heydrich to "submit to me as soon as possible a general plan of the administrative material and financial measures necessary for carrying out the desired final solution of the Jewish question."

..........there are just no words to describe what sick monsters these people were, Hitler in particular. 

2007 – Operation Banner, the presence of the British Army in Northern Ireland, and the longest-running British Army operation ever, comes to an end.

And births this date include....
1929 – Don Murray, American actor

1932 – Ted Cassidy, American actor (d. 1979)

1939 – France Nuyen, French actress

1965 – J. K. Rowling, British writer

And then........ Jeannie told me about this cucumber salad she made. I was drooling. The dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 t. salt
4 cups sliced cucumbers
Mix all together and refrigerate.

You know me.... had to alter this recipe. First of all I didn't have any cucumbers, so the substituting started... I made the dressing using Best Foods mayo, white honey balsamic vinegar, sugar, salt, and I added in about 1/2 t. of the Trinidad Lemon Garlic seasoning. ( ) (GAWD, how I love garlic and lemon!) and used sea salt. I like the coarse Baleine sea salt. I get it at the market, but it can also be purchased at or the spice house.

There are two kinds, this the coarse one or fine.

Ok, dressing all whisked together. Then I cut up some of the stir-fry veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots) Put them in a pan with a little water and olive oil and steamed them until partially tender. Drained and cooled in colander...

I diced up three large tomatoes and chopped up some of that awesome crock-pot chicken (blog 7-29), put in bowl. When veggies were cool they went in too..

Tossed it all with the dressing and refrigerated it for an hour or so.

Chopped up lettuce and topped that with the salad mixture and some shredded mozzarella cheese. OMGOOOOOOOD!!!

What a great dinner for a hot sultry night. Mmmmm.... leftovers for tonight!!!

Yesterday was haircut day with Leah. Then the down comforter went to the cleaners to ready it for winter (oh please hurry up winter!!!). Stopped in and said "hi" to Brian and Emily. Then to see Turk and take him my old computer. He renovates them for "po folks" whose kids need them and they can't afford them! Good guy!!!! Then to the Elk's to meet up with Bill and Jeannie. Lots of changes taking place there. Our fav bartendress Billi has left. Darn. New one, Zee, is from Alaska. Nice gal. We miss you Billi!!!!!!

Then home, dinner, my chair, TV. At 7:30 after being told we would get a lightening/thunder storm, we got one clap of thunder. Then at 8pm the rain started. It lasted a whole minute!
PICTURE OF THE DAY (Thanks, from Patty!)

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

Mutt's Day
I love my mutt, Dude... a lab/Rottweiler. My Lucy was German Shepherd/Collie. Kind loving gentle dogs!



It's Mutt's Day.  Mutts deserve their day in the spotlight, as much as a pure breed. If you own a mutt, or you are a mutt (reading this), then you know this day is for you.
By definition a mutt, sometimes called a "Half-breed", is a dog that is of mixed breed.  They come from two to several breeds. Purebred owners, and sometimes the public in general, view them as lesser in many ways. Mutt owners know better. They value the diversity and uniqueness of their mutts. Sure, a mutt doesn't carry the expensive price tag that a purebred with papers has on its head. To the mutt owner, however, the mutt is invaluable. In addition, mutts don't walk around needing to prove anything. You won't see them strutting around any dog shows trying to prove they are the best.
To all mutts and and mutt owners, we hope you thoroughly enjoy Mutt's Day. Spend the day relaxing and doing all the things you and your dog like to do. Do so with both of your chins held high. For your mutt is worth a million bucks!

Weather/Fires ~ Dennis Richardson ~ Shed Relief ~ Vanity Plate ~ 1959 Lincoln Continental For Sale ~ Cheesecake

Good 60º couple scattered clouds morning.
Thunder/lightening predicted for some areas. Saw a friend Cedric Schreiber (LASD ret) on the news last night. He lives by the Selma (Oregon) fire, The Reeves Creek fire, and it came dangerously close to his home yesterday. He was ready to evacuate his 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 chickens, and his horse! Fortunately he didn't have to.

Yesterday we hit 100.9º at 2pm. By 3pm it was 101.8º. And at 4pm it was 102º. UGH!!!!!!

A special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Dennis Richardson! Our choice for the next Governor in this great state of Oregon!!! 

With his love, his wife, Cathy....

I have been giving my dog Dude, the shed monster (if you ever had a lab you know how they shed! and he's also part Rottweiler!) this stuff called Shed Relief by LambertKay.

It's got omega 3 & 6 fatty acids that lubricate the coat and antioxidents vitamins A and E and soybean oil. It has cut down on his shedding so amazingly! Nancy got it for her Jack Russell, Skeeter, and said the same thing. I was buying it from PetCo but now get it from Amazon (cheaper!)

Then.... I saw Amazon also had another LambertKay product ( ) called Boundary.
Bruiser has lots of claws and tends to claw furniture, also his scratching post and box, but the furniture is a no no and I have a water bottle I squirt him with. Anyway, got this and so far so good. He's really ignoring the places I sprayed! Yipppeeeee. They also have Boundary for dogs if there are places you don't want them to go.

Yesterday was over the top exciting. I paid bills, vacuumed, washed clothes, and found more "stuff" to get rid of! Salvation Army/Goodwill here I come!
