Joe ~ Slow Cooker PBJ Cheesecake ~ LASD Boy's Band ~ Miller's Photos on FB

Good 29ยบ too dark out to see morning.

I will be adding a cartoon a day for the next three days... the following is one... and thanks Mike Cipolla for these laughs~!

Today is a special birthday... friend, former LASD now ret. from Avalon and Lakewood, husband of the famous JoAnn, resident of the Oregon coast.... JOE KIRK!  

Happy Birthday Joe!!!

Watched Rachael Ray yesterday. She is so irritating with her hand waving, hair fluffing, etc and the way she interrupts EVERYONE like what she has to say is MORE IMPORTANT!!! UGH. But, she has some great recipes if you can get past all the above... I generally Tivo the show so I can fast forward through the nonsense. She had a young man make Slow Cooker Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake yesterday. OMG. Jeannie and I both HAVE to make this!!

Had a fun conversation with former LASD now ret Chris Miller. He is a volunteer photographer for the department and the LASD Museum guy. I have some photos of department happenings I'm going to send to him. I had posted this photo on my FB page... this was about 1961 when I was in the LA Co Sheriff's Boys Band. 

(yes, that's right .... not PC!!!) There were 5 girls in the band, 2 carrying the banner and 3 of us playing the glockenspiel (bells). 

Another high school friend, Jon Harting, was also in the band. We marched in the Hollywood Lane Parade and the Rose Parade behind Sheriff Eugene Biscailuz and his mounted posse. Chris posts photos relating to the department on FB...
I've got some good ones for you Chris....  Good talking to you!
