Rain ~ Luncheon ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Humans as Cats ~ Sue's Vodka Sauce


Good 48ยบ very dark cloudy raining morning. Last night it started raining BUCKETS and the wind was HOWLING! Wow. Did that on and off all night. The rain gauge shows we got 1/2".

The radar over head doesn't show as much possibility for that kind of rain today, but it's comin' down now!




Yesterday I went tot he Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon at the Elks.

Had a great time chatting with the LASD folks. (Riffle, Allgoods, Horne, Yellin, Ray, Schieber) Some will join us back at the Elks for the St. Pat's dinner on the 15th ... for Eric's famous corned beef and cabbage. Bought my tickets yesterday. Then Dee showed up and we had a couple glasses of wine down in the lounge. Great to see her and see she's getting well from her surgery. Girl, you are looking good!! Tammy and Paul headed to the movies to see Anchorman 2.
