RAIN! ~ Bruiser ~ White House Adam Henry ~ Horse Rescue ~ Grants Pass Day ~ Cherries Jubilee



Good 60ยบ raining 79% humid morning.

It's raining, it's pouring.
The old man is snoring.
He went to bed and bumped his head,
And he wouldn't get up in the morning.

Rain started about 6am. Still coming down. YES!!!!

When I went out to take a picture of my mountain, there was Bruiser out hunting in the pasture. When he saw me he came running!!!


He was soaking wet and needed a toweling off! Nut.

 
Good grief! Here is the President giving his "latte" salute to the Marines. What an ASS!!!!! Absolutely ZERO respect shown to our military!!!!!!!

I received this video of a mom and daughter making a wrong turn and finding a starving horse. This is moving and the ending is perfect! Thanks Deeewayne Honnee for sending this! Oh, and get out the Kleenex!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAN!!!






Yesterday I took my car into Grants Pass for service.

Had a nice chat with two gentlemen in the lobby. One man's son had been a Covina Police Officer for 22 years. Was t-boned in his radio car in an intersection. Broke 3 bones in his neck and he's been retired. I also saw Mr. Gary Williams (LAPD ret.) and his bride Betty shopping for a new ride!

Then a stop at Safeway for fresh veggies ...

PetCo ...

for American made jerky strips for Dude. They had this 3 year old cat for adoption. She is adorable,

gray and white, and soooooooooooo sweet and loving. I wanted to bring her home in the worst way!!! They also had some funny rats...

Next stop Halloween City ... lots of fun stuff in there!

Then to Rays ... 

for chicken thighs (2 for 1 sale).

Home and all the loot in and put away, then had a nice chat with BFF Jeannie. Was going to make a pizza for dinner but no energy. Will make it today. Gonna be a seafood/veggie pizza.

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