Gloom & Rain ~ BFF Linda ~ TBT ~ My Present ~ Football

Good 48.9º drizzly morning. Heard rain from late afternoon on and off all night. Didn't get much, only 1/4". 

Gloomy and sprinkley all day yesterday.

Went into Grants Pass... dropped off a taste of the casserole to Jennifer, saw Brian and got my 2015 State Farm desk calendar, Safeway for dog and cat treats and eggs, PetCo for USA chicken jerky for Dude, Ace to pay bill, post office to mail letter. Ahhhhh... home.

Today is a very special BFF's birthday... my pal Linda Nantz. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SISTERFRIEND! (Her hubby, Andy, was in the Marines with Jerry.)   

Throw Back Thursday:
Kristen Brian and I with  my Dad... Leslie Laney.

I love Christmas Lights,
They remind me of politicians

They all hang together,
Half of them don't work,
And the ones that do aren't that bright!

Yesterday my Christmas present to me came via UPS. These are LLBean "wicked good clogs" slippers. I LOVE them and when home wear them just about all day. They have a rubber sole, so going outside is not a problem. They come in three colors, light tan, chocolate, and this is graphite. I buy myself a new pair every year.

Football tonight....
 The Cowboys gonna be herdin' da Bears!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

Hi Sue,
As I was reading your Thurs. Blog I came across the picture of
you and a girlfriend holding glasses of white wine and smiling at
the camera. You both looked very happy, healthy and although
I don’t often use this word, you were “cute!” You must be taking
good of yourselves in order to look so good. Thanks for the
pretty picture!
