Marie Maxwell ~ TBT ~ Cathy's Rescue ~ LE/Fire Lunch ~ Sheriff Gilbertson ~ Carwash ~ PattyM ~ Pre 9-11

Good 41ยบ morning. Burrr... Left windows open and this is the first night that I haven't had the ceiling fan running all night in the bedroom. Burrrrr... again. Maybe soon Fall will arrive!!!

Had a call from Aaron last night.... He said he has built a fire already in the wood stove! Of course he's up in Montana. Last week Marie became a U.S. Citizen! CONGRATULATIONS MARIE! Good for you, Sweetheart! xoxoxo

Throw Back Thursday ..... Clint Eastwood... YUMMMMM
(Thanks Barry Perrou ...LASD ret...for this!)

I have this amazing animal loving friend, Cathy (LASD ret) who found this baby bird in her horse's feed bucket. He has a broken wing and Cathy has wrapped it up in hopes it will mend.

Cath... I think you should have been a veterinarian instead...
She's also saved a blue jay... who is timid and won't leave so she just stays with her. Another blue jay she rescued has flown off, but he returns and even flew inside her house not long ago!

Yesterday was our retired LE/Fire luncheon at the Grants Pass Golf Club. A short speech was given by Josephine County Sheriff, Gil Gilbertson. Such a nice man!!! He would like some of our retired guys/gals to volunteer, get a badge, sworn, gun... as Reserves to work on cold cases. Josephine Co only has 2 deputies. The budget for the Sheriff's Dept was cut from over 4 million to just over 1 million. Can't operate the jail either so have to pay Jackson Co to use their jail. Sucks! The stupid Jo Co commissioners don't think having deputies patrol is necessary. WHAAAAAAAAAA???????? What would they do if they needed a cop???? At this point you won't get a deputy to respond unless it's life threatening. All other crimes go on record if reported, but no response, ergo... Reserves for free to help out. Several of our guys took the paperwork to fill out for the job.
Lunch was buffet... green salad, pasta salad, rice, chicken, and meatloaf.

Then I stopped at Brian's office. His former neighbor Vic had dropped off two big boxes of kindling for me! How nice!!!!!  Then to the carwash...............

Then home, chores, wine, dinner, chair, and a movie... "My Best Friend's Wedding" with Julia Roberts and Dermot Mulroney...

A sweet girl, dear friend, and great mom, Patty McNaughton
is celebrating her birthday today wayyyyy down deep in Texas! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATTY!!

With her grandson Wesley.

This from my Seal Beach pal, Judy....
An old adage:  'A word to the wise is sufficient.' 

Because I care about you all, I'm warning friends and family to stay away from highly populated areas a day or so ahead and after, and of course on 9/11.  I do not think the public is aware that there are 12 missing Libyan airplanes.  Have you read or heard the below?  Why has the lame stream media been so quiet about this?

Historically and birthdays today:

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

September 4th

Newspaper Carrier Day is celebrated on September 4th
International Newspaper Carrier Day is observed on varying dates, and is established by the Newspaper Association of America. This year: October 18, 2014.
Newspaper Carrier Day honors everyone  who is now, or once was, a newspaper carrier. The list includes thousands, if not millions, of people. Years ago, this job was primarily populated by kids, from pre-teen through approximately sixteen. At that age, many, but not all, kids moved to restaurant, grocery store and retail type of jobs.
About Newspaper Carrier Day:
This day commemorates the hiring of the very first newspaper carrier. Newspaper carriers date back to the early 1800s. On September 10, 1833, 10 year old Barney Flaherty became the first newspaper carrier. Benjamin Day, publisher of The New York Sun, hired Barney Flaherty to sell papers for his penny press. The only job requirement, was that he had to show that he could throw a newspaper into the bushes.
Now, few kids deliver papers anymore except in small towns. But, but the "Carrier Day" tradition lives. This job is now largely held by adults, many of them delivering the paper from their cars.
