Good 52º gonna be triple digits today morning. UGH. Watering early as we speak.
Yesterday started out clear and pretty.. Trees are changing..
Turkeys appear pretty stupid most of the time, but these boys were staying in the shade!
Hey fellas, whatcha doin'? I can't get over the fence. (DUH, you can fly dummy!)
Today is a very special birthday in our family... Mr. Tucker is 10 years old! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TUCKER. I love you!!! ♥

Today is also Jerry's former radio car partner's birthday... and our Best Man ... Steve Voors (LASD ret). HAPPY BIRTHDAY 10-30 DUDE! xoxo
(for you non-law enforcement folks, "10-30" is a radio code for 'Does not conform to regulations'.. Jerry's nickname for Steve!! LOL)
Barbara and Steve at the Laughlin Reunion a couple of years ago...
And Steve and Jerry at Jerry's retirement in 1996:
Tucker and Steve both have the same middle name, Scott. So Steve is SSV (which sounds like a fast car or jet)
SSV may refer to:
- SSV, an acronym for Sailing School Vessel, a type of Tall ship.
- SSV (band), a German techno music group
- Soviet command ship SSV-33
- Special Service Vehicles (SSVs), police vehicles in the U.S. and Canada
- Society for the Suppression of Vice
- Small saphenous vein
- SSV (game architecture), arcade architecture named after its developers SETA Corporation, Sammy Corporation, and Visco Corporation
And Tucker is TSP (As his Aunt Kristen calls him, "my little teaspoon"!) So many meanings for this acronym... science, food, government, music:
Another coincidence .... Jerry hired on LASD in 1967, Kristen's birth year, and retired in 1996, her daughter Alex's birth year!
This is an amazing friendship....
Make you think of an old movie????
Historically this date...
In the Northern Hemisphere, meteorological Autumn starts on 20 September. In theSouthern Hemisphere, meteorological Spring starts on this date.
1881 – Chester A. Arthur is inaugurated as the 21st President of the United Statesfollowing the assassination of James Garfield.
1973 – Billie Jean King beats Bobby Riggs in The Battle of the Sexes tennis match at theHouston Astrodome in Houston, Texas.
Riggs was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1988. He founded the Bobby Riggs Tennis Museum Foundation to increase awareness of the disease. Riggs died of cancer October 25, 1995, in Encinitas, California, aged 77.
In his final days, Riggs maintained friendly contact with Billie Jean King, and King phoned him often. She called him shortly before his death, offering to visit him, but he did not want her to see him in his condition. She phoned him one last time, the night before his death and, according to Billie Jean herself in an HBO documentary about her, the last thing she told Riggs was "I love you." (Interview with Billie Jean King, USA US Open telecast, August 28, 2006)
Yesterday I canned the green tomatoes. In the jar goes tomatoes, jalapeño, and lots of garlic!
The process is easy and no water-bath. Will fill you in on that tomorrow or the next day.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
