Weather ~ Mr. Lizz-ard ~ TBT ~ Ruth ~ Pickled Fruits/Veggies ~ Thoughts ~ Big Dan Me Paul ~ Bucks ~ Yoda ~ Orange Creamsicle Cookies

Good 54º cloudy morning. Wow, so much cooler. Nice! Even slept without the AC on last night! But that will change fast in the next few days.
The rain we got yesterday morning soon dissipated and it wasn't even enough to measure. They got more in Medford, but the storm was moving in a more northeast direction so missed a lot of us to the west. It was nice while it lasted and boosted my mood from "it's hot" "it's humid" "it's smokey" crankiness ... to OH BOY RAIN! Smile.
This am:

Looked out my window, and sometimes the wildlife isn't exactly what you are looking to photograph... one is on top and one facing down on the side on the left. "Mister Lizz-ard is out in the yard."

It's Throw Back Thursday! Yipppeeeee.....
Kristen and Brian .. Christmas 1989. Such cuties!
I posted this on Kristen's FB page and a friend of her's said, "Ha ha ha ... only in California, barefoot and shorts at Christmas!"

Today is my friend and President of Jackson Co Republican Women, Ruth Broadman's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ruth!!! xoxo

Now here's a super easy way to pickle fruits and veggies....
For 2 pounds of fruit or veggies combine  3 cups white vinegar, 1½ cups water, ¾ cup sugar, 3 T. pickling spice, 1 T peppercorns, and 2 t. salt. Bring to boil and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1 jalapeño and 4 dill sprigs. Pour over your favorite veggies or fruit and refrigerate at least an hour. Crunch crunch yum.

This was in Redbook. Think about carrots, radishes, cucumbers, peaches, pineapple.... anything you'd eat raw. Store in refrigerator in air tight container up to a week. (sorry, scan didn't come out too good!)

I had some thoughts... I know...rare! But I was thinking that people who design cars don't drive with purses. People who design dishwashers, don't take into consideration that tiny little hole you are supposed to pour the Jet Dry or Finish into from the bottle holding it horizontal! Those who design dishwashers don't ever do dishes! 

The other day I was in Ace and Big Dan decided to take a selfie of he and I. Paul photobombed us! LOL ....... I gave him a devil tail and horns!

These two showed up the day before yesterday.. ever see a buck squat? LOL...

Here is Gabe Ramirez (LASD ret) with his and Ann's new Corgi... the one I call Yoda!  Such a cutie!!! Oh, and you too Gabe!

Historical haps and famous births for today:
Steve Martin, Susan St. James, Magic Johnson ...

Yesterday Dude was overwhelmed with company coming up to our house. First was Paul, who came to see what my Mitsubishi heat/ac units looked like and how the plumbing was done. Then the Pacific Power guy to read the meters. Then the UPS guy to deliver a package (nope, not Dave, Dude's dad) and then Chris and Carl came to look at the boat that is for sale.

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