Wild Weather ~ Smoothini ~ Viet Nam Wall ~ What I've Learned 2 ~ Poodle Pups



Good 59ยบ very cloudy morning.
Yesterday was nutz with a cloud cover coming in, then in the distance some thunder and it got a little closer and then the RAIN and HAIL!!!!! This was almost 5pm.... it lasted a whole 10 minutes or so and we got 1/4"!





The wind was blowing like crazy and all over my windows...


It stopped and Bruiser wanted to go out..


Then it started again, but didn't last and we only got about 1/8" that time. WOW, everything is still wet out there. Nice! Predictions for more precip later this afternoon. Hope so! This will also help the firefighters.


This guy is AMAZING. A former Marine turned "Smoothini" ... Thanks to one of our MCL guys, Loren Otto, for sharing this with me... and now sharing it with you...



Speaking of military folks.... for those of you who are Oregonads a project has been started by a group called Southern Oregon Veterans Benefit. They have the backing of my friend, Medford State Representative Sal Esquivel, and they want to build a Viet Nam Veteran's Memorial Wall. I have sent in a donation. I saw the traveling wall when it was in Temple City a number of years ago. A lot of folks can't go to Washington DC to see the wall, so building one here is a fabulous idea! If you are interested in making a donation go to www.sobv.org   and you can read all about it.

More of that list from Greg:
I've learned that there are people who love you dearly but just don't know how to show it. (So true!)
Age 42
I've learned that you can make someone's day by simply sending them a little note.
Age 44
I've learned that the greater a person's sense of guilt, the greater his or her need to cast blame on others. (Ya think Obummer feels guilt? LOL)
Age 46     

I've learned that children and grandparents are natural allies.
Age 47
I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on and it will be better tomorrow. (True, it does go on.....)
Age 48
I've learned that singing "Amazing Grace" can lift my spirits for hours.
Age 49
I've learned that motel mattresses are better on the side away from the phone.
Age 50
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a man by the way he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.
Age 51
I've learned that keeping a vegetable garden is worth a medicine cabinet full of pills. (Unless you have a bad back and bending over isn't the most fun!)
Age 52
I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you miss them terribly after they die. (AMEN, sooooo true!)
Age 53
I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life. (Personally, I feel it's being true to yourself and enjoying what you like best and not doing anything you hate!)
Age 58

National Hot Dog Day




This is making me drool!!! The Jo Co Fair is next month... I'm goin' and gettin' a hot dog on a stick!


National Hot Dog Day celebrates one of America's favorite summer sandwiches. It is only fitting that this dog gets its day.
Its summertime. Hot dogs are center stage on the grill, and at picnics all across America. They are at the ballpark. They are sold from carts on street corners in every city. It's not hard to find them. We consume hundreds of millions of hot dogs on the Fourth of July alone.
Enjoy National Hot Dog Day to the fullest. Have a couple of hot dogs for lunch or dinner. And, don't forget to cook a few on a stick at the evening campfire.
What's in a hot dog? Don't' ask, and we won't tell. Sometimes, its best if you don't know.
