Good 55º cloudy morning.
Yesterday was the Memorial Day ceremony, Flag unfurling, the 21 gun salute, and the flyover at Riverside Park for Boatnik. The Whitewater Hydroplane Race started at 1pm. It is a 48 mile race in 12 mile increments and boats going 80 miles per hour! I picked up Jennifer and Mike at the Elk's and we headed to the park early (to get a good seat/view on the VIP deck, plus I had VIP parking! Thanks Bri.) Jeannie and Bill joined us. Saw a lot of people I know. Friend Karen Baertschiger was there. Her son Herman is our Republican state senator. ( https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/baertschiger )

My friend "GloW" (yes, capital W, as her last name is Whitley) has her jewelry in a store on 6th St in Grants Pass called Lamp Light, across the street from the Christian Book Store on at G Street...
Her jewelry will be listed as "Gloria Whitley" and it's on a shelf that faces the front door.

Grape Popsicle Day
Instead of having a grape popsicle, why not a frozen grape margarita?
1 cup black seedless grapes
2 shots tequila
2 shots sweet/sour mix
2 cups ice
salt for rimming (optional)
Place all ingredients (except salt & lime slices) in good blender or food processor and purée until blended and slushy...about 2 minutes. Run lime around rim of 2 glasses and dip in salt. Garnish with lime slice.
