Good cloudy 55º morning. Got to 96º here (100º in Grants Pass) and should be 98º here today with heat rising again tomorrow. Supposed to be some wild thunderstorms in the east today.....
In the northern California foothills east of Sacramento there is a 2000 acre wildfire and they are evacuating a lot of folks..
Brian got here at 8-ish yesterday morning and loaded all that stuff for the dump. We had to go down to the barn to get a hacksaw for the plastic pipe (my job) and a skill saw for the boards (Brian's job). I made Dude ride in golf cart so he wouldn't be running through the tar weed and the ones with stickers...
Of course Bruiser was nosey and came down to the barn too..
Brian got the wood all cut up and the truck and trailer loaded..
Dude had to keep an eye on everything and the Bruise just lay in the dirt!
Off he went to the dump................... (xo Thanks B!!!!!!!)

I cut up some turkey hotdogs and tomatoes, put them in a pan with olive oil and heated over med/high heat. Added in a couple eggs.....
Put some mozzarella cheese in the bottom of the serving dish, plated the egg/hotdog/tomato mixture on top... and added a bit of wasabe mayonnaise...
It was good, and I'd make this again, but not use the hotdogs. Should have used the chicken thighs in the fridge instead... and maybe something else besides that wasabe spread. The eggs on top of the cheese was really good!! Actually this was too much food, don't know why I used two eggs.... ate the rest later.
Also, finished up the infused vodka with fresh pineapple and fresh pitted cherries. Sat for a week. Strained it ... saved the fruit and vodka in the refrigerator. Will have some today!
LOL!!! (NO S**t!!!)
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

National Scotch Day
Ok, are we celebrating my heritage? or the distilled spirits from Scotland? Guess it could be all things Scottish, though it's most likely the latter. I like Scotch, Scotch Tape, Scottish Eggs, and Scotsmen ... especially Sean Connery
! It's that brogue. Mmmmm.... and kilts! And bagpipes! Yes. It's in my blood!
My family tartan... Dunbar
.. and the Maxwell tartan...
In regards to the distilled Scotch (which in any case many Scotsmen contain Scotch) here are a number of legal requirements in Britain that must be met in order for Scotch whisky to be called 'Scotch.' It must be made in Scotland, for starters. And don't ever spell it 'whiskey.' Here in America, we salute those tradition-bound Scottish distillers by recognizing National Scotch Day! Are you on the rocks or neat?
