Good 52º morning. The rain did a small amount of help with the Onion Mountain fire, but it also kept the water dropping planes grounded. The fire is now 4000 acres with 8% contained.

Yesterday I pulled stems and sliced in half a number of the red cherry tomatoes. An experiment. Tossed them with a little olive oil and sea salt. Then I put them in the dehydrator over night. They are teeny tiny now, but very tasty. I think I'll do something else with the rest of them...
Snack was a beautiful honey apple and honey peanut butter...
Mike, the pest control guy came by yesterday. The trap had caught another skunk and a squirrel. So far the score is Digger Squirrels 11 - Skunks 2.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

POW/MIA Recognition Day is a day of remembrance and hope for the speedy and safe return of American Prisoners of War, and those still Missing in Action. It also seeks the return of the remains of fallen soldiers.
The first official commemoration of POW/MIAs was July 18, 1979. It was the result of resolutions passed in Congress. The first national ceremony was held on this date. Over the next several years, it was held in varying dates of the year. Finally, in 1986, The National League of Families proposed the third Friday in September as a day to recognize and remember POW/MIAs. This date was selected, as it is not associated with any wars. Each year, the president of the United States issues a proclamation on this day.
Did you know? Federal law requires the POW/MIA flag to be flown on the following days:
- Armed Forces Day, May 16
- Memorial Day, May 25
- Flag Day, June 14
- Independence Day, July 4
- POW/MIA Day, 3rd Friday of September
- Veterans Day, Nov. 11
You will also notice the POW/MIA flag flown at all US Post office buildings, Veterans Administration, military memorial facilities, and many U.S. government buildings.
Please take a few moments today, to remember our missing soldiers, and those held as prisoners of war. Attend a ceremony in your area. Say a prayer for POWs and MIAs. Also, write to your senators and congressman to urge continued and increased effort towards bringing every service man and woman home.
