Moon ~ Wingsuit Skydivers ~ Woman's Physical ~ Momma Doe/Baby Fawn ~ Chuck & Linda ~ Gail ~ Cuke Martini ~ Chipotle/Chicken/Pasta

Good 60.9º very cloudy morning. Last night was the super moon and my friend Cathy (LASD ret) took this one from So. Cal... we had too many clouds to see it!

Got this from Roy Riffle (LASD ret)..... You have seen these wingsuit skydivers... this one meets his Maker in Rio (nothing gruesome in the video) Pretty amazing what they can/can't do!

Ok, so this amusing story came from Gator in Florida (USN ret.) Thought you'd get a kick out of this, Bri!

During her physical examination, a doctor asked a middle-aged woman about her physical activity level.

The woman said she spent 3 days a week, every week in the outdoors.
"Well, yesterday afternoon was typical;
I took a five hour walk about 7 miles through some pretty rough terrain.
I waded along the edge of a lake.
I pushed my way through 2 miles of brambles.
I got sand in my shoes and my eyes. I barely avoided stepping on a snake.
I climbed several rocky hills.
I went to the bathroom behind some big trees.
I ran away from an irate mother bear and then ran away from one angry bull elk.
The mental stress of it all left me shattered.
At the end of it all I drank a scotch and three glasses of wine."

Amazed by the story, the doctor said, "You must be one hell of an outdoor woman!"

"No," the woman replied, "I'm just a really, really shitty golfer".

I went back to take a shower and saw momma deer laying in the shade in the backyard. She had her fawn with her. I tried to get photos (golf cart in way) without scaring them through the bathroom window! Momma found some leaves under the creek bridge she found tasty....

Baby had to check it out too.....

In the afternoon I went to Safeway for a few items and then to Jennifer's for a glass (or two) of wine. Sat on her porch and watched Mike barbecue. We saw the jet boats go by. She lives right on the Rogue. But, it was hot! 100º and muggy. ICK. Come on Fall!!!!!

Today is the anniversary of Patty and Cliff's son Chuck and his bride Linda. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids!!! 

And... today is also the birthday of the bride of Bruce (LASD ret), Gail Harris! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAIL!!!

Dinner was another one of my kooky put-togethers. First I started with a lemon cucumber martini. These cukes Jeannie grew and was not all that happy with them. They are very prickly on the skin so have to be scrubbed well and the flavor is more or less flat. I used citrus vodka and it still lacked that big cucumber punch! Oh well... gotta try!

Then for the dinner... a box of chipotle pasta salad mix (Archer Farms from Target), Costco canned chicken, canned sliced mushrooms, pigeon peas, and from Jeannie and Bill a black bell pepper, tomatoes, and a zucchini.....

Cook the pasta, let drain, cool with water, and let drain until ready to use...  In the pan goes the zucchini and bell pepper with olive oil and sauteéd until slightly browned ...

Then add in everything else and heat through....

In the pasta box is a dry chipotle spice mixture and you mix that with mayonnaise.. added that in and stirred well. Heat. Serve....

REALLY good. Loved the chipotle flavor.

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