Fires ~ Olga & Jimmy ~ Alice R ~ Citizenship Day ~ Marie

Good 56ยบ horribly smokey morning. The winds are coming north and bring with it the smoke from the Weed/Happy Camp Fires.

The smoke is so bad and I've been coughing and coughing. Staying inside with the air open windows. Rain is predicted for the coast today and hopefully in Josephine Co, where the Onion Mountain is, later this afternoon. Praying. The Onion Mtn fire is at 3000 acres now and 2% contained. Evacuations still at Level 1.

Today my friends Jim (LASD Sgt) and Olga Duran are celebrating their 26th wedding anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!

Yesterday I had my hair cut. Had a nice visit with Leah. She's spectacular with hair! Then I went over to Bill and Jeannie's. Jeannie and I picked tomatoes, regular size and cherry tomatoes. I will be canning for a couple of days.

Sorry, short blog. Everything ok, just not in the mood.


All I know. Happy Hump Day. Nuff said. Ciao.

September 17th

Citizenship Day celebrates being a citizen of the United States of America, the greatest country the world has ever seen. Our great country (and it's people!) is something every American should be proud of. America is filled with outstanding citizens, many of whom have played a direct or indirect role in making this country and what it stands for, a beacon of hope, promise and success!
This special day is for all citizens, both native born, and those who chose to become Americans. It is a day to be proud to be an American. It is a day to appreciate being a citizen of this country and the rights and freedoms it brings. We suggest American citizens never take for granted the rights, freedoms, and privileges afforded us, as citizens of the United States of America. 
We suggest today, and every day, you express your citizenship in some way. It's the sum of all of the actions and deeds by famous and "ordinary" citizens, that makes this country so great.
To each and every American citizen, we wish you a very Happy Citizenship Day!
Our family's newest citizen...Mrs. Marie Maxwell
