The 'do' isn't really working for you!

Watched the 1987 movie Over The Top.. with Sly Stallone as a trucker and arm wrestler. He certainly was yummy looking back then~!
And it's been nearly 30 years since I had seen it. Interesting. I was working for Fabergé when the movie came out. Stallone was driving an old semi and on the trailer he was pulling was a picture of
  Fabergé was one of the movie's sponsors.

Went to Medford yesterday and met up with Joanie McCoy for lunch at Olive Garden. Nancy Perry joined us. 

Been quite a long time since we've chatted. She bought a house in Henderson NV and spends most of her time there. This was taken on my birthday in 2011... that's Joanie with the arrow...
back l-r: PJ, PatC, Jeannie, Joanie

Lunch was great. Joanie had this ginormous margarita...

Nancy had salad (she's soooo good!). Joanie and I had (off the "lighter Italian fare" menu) Ravioli di Portobello and minestrone soup (with LOTS of cheese!). OMGOOOOOOOD!!!!

Nice visit with Joanie. She sold her house up here in Gold Hill and now lives most of the year in Henderson NV. She and her friend Jim are staying at an RV park just over the border in Ca, called R Ranch in Hornbrook. They like it there and it has a pool as well as a shooting range! Cool. After lunch Nancy and I headed to Costco (natch they didn't have the dog dental chews Dude likes!) then to Trader Joe's, next door to PetCo for Dude's Shed Relief, Ace for cracked corn, and finally the pharmacy for my prescription. Whew. Nancy helped me carry in all my stuff and we both were TIRED! The heat didn't help!

Nice afternoon ladies! Thanks! Nancy has a daughter that lives in Henderson and Joanie invited us to come visit... so we just might take a road trip one of these days!
Speaking of trips, my grandchildren, Alex and Jack, are on an Alaskan cruise with their dad. My friends Bob and Micol are also on one. They might be on the same ship!!! Can't wait to hear all about it and see photos.

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

Oh how exciting to be on an Alaskan cruise!! Ask them if they were on Carnival. I am FB friends with Carnival's head cruise director, John Heald. I also read his blog which is hysterical.
He has been all over the world on Carnival ships for 30 something years and right now he is on The Miracle in Alaska. First time on the Alaskan one for him.

I am thinking this may be a graduation gift for Alex? Cool!

John and I aren't partial to Italian food but we do love Olive Garden. Bottomless salad is the best!
