Dude & Maggie ~ Alex ~ Rufus P Rochester ~ Brian & Tigger ~ Stir Fry Veggies & Crab Dinner

Good 63º when I got up morning. Cloudy and smokey still.

This morning I'm late because I had to take Dude to the vets for his mani/pedi. Was there early, 8am. UGH. Dude waiting for the doc.....

But, better than taking him when the sidewalks are too hot to walk on! So, I just got home (9:45) and it 75º already.  Had to make a couple stops (post office, bank, Ace) and the good thing is that my car has a 'remote start'. So I can lock the car, push the start button, and the engine comes on as well as the AC. In the winter I do that and the heater starts. So, Dude was safe and cool while I was doing errands. 

Sunday night my "Italian son", Alex, who lives in AZ was hit by a drunk who left the scene. Alex was on his scoot (Harley). The collision broke his handle bars and he had a time slowing down the bike, turning it off, and finally falling off. He has a bad elbow and some road rash. He's soooooo lucky that is all!!!

Also, a year ago today...

Yesterday and the day before I was going through a bunch of old photos and scanning them. Here are a couple...
1986, our little Rufus P. Rochester... a little pooch Brian found wandering the neighborhood. Nobody knew where he belonged, so we took him in. What a love!

LOL, and Brian on his 19th birthday... napping with Tigger napping next to him!

Dinner last night was stir fried veggies with 'fake' crab, an Asian Sesame Ginger sauce, and Manischevwitz fine (teeny tiny) egg noodles (more like mini spaghetti), and roasted red pepper cheese spread....
First I cooked the noodles, drained and cooled them with cold water. Into the pan went the Asian Sesame Ginger dressing and the stir fry veggies. I broke up the broccoli.. and the crab ...

After they had cooked a bit I added in the noodles and stirred in the roasted pepper cheese. Heated all through...

OMGOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!! Got leftovers. Lunch!

All I know. Happy Tuesday. Nuff said. Ciao.

My Mom, bless her heart, didn't like them as her Mother did, but would eat them anyway, swallowing them whole because she didn't like the texture! LOL
