More Baca ~ LE/Fire Lunch ~ BB ~ Ranch Blue Cheese Dip

Since all my pictures won't load... you can go to my FB page and see the ones that didn't.... moon, landscape, lodge, dip, Bruiser (ok, got them to work... but today is 1-11!)

Good 40ยบ dark and gloomy morning.

With all the discussion about Los Angeles County Sheriff Leroy Baca, here is a good article to read...... Perhaps he stayed too long. Duh.

Yesterday was the Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon with a bunch of us retired. (Speaking of LASD!)

I had a great time meeting two new guys who joined us. One retired in 1981 and one just last year. Cedric was a pilot and trained our Aero Bureau and Sky Knight pilots, worked Lakewood, ELA, & Search and Rescue. Jon worked Firestone and the Wayside Range and knew my Jerry. He said some really neat things about Jerry and his admiration for him. Got me all teary inside. The "war stories" ran rampant and were so fun to listen to.

BFF's hubby, Billy Boy has 'walking pneumonia' determined after seeing the doctor yesterday. He's under house arrest and being monitored by his Nurse Ratchet. (LOL, sorry J!) You better mind her BB and get well!!

What a waste of time, I watched the People's Choice Awards last night. Just a bunch of BS. Hollywood with the help of thousands of incredibly awe struck people patting themselves on the back. Why don't they put all that time and money to good use and help people who need it or make our returning soldiers lives better. Especially those wounded! Don't they make enough $$, they have to have trophies too?

Here's a good sounding dip... Blue Cheese Ranch

1½ cups sour cream
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
1 (1 oz) pouch Ranch seasoning (such as Hidden Valley)
4 oz crumbled blue cheese (or crumbled Feta if you don't like blue)
Combine all, refrigerate until ready to serve... Serve with spicy Sun Chips or veggies....

Look... it's the Bruise!

All I know. Computer still making me crazy! HATE typing on this laptop keyboard! All pictures won't load to blog. No word from Turk. Happy Thursday. Nuff said. Ciao.
