1½" of RAIN! ~ TBT Kristen ~ Jack & Gracie ~ Nanno ~ Bruise & The Dude ~ Pizza ~ NCIS 'Naw-lens'

Good 56º cloudy cloudy morning. Rain appears to be moving east. A good thing is that it's moving towards the fire east of Sacramento!

Afternoon yesterday.. and looks about the same today...

Kristen sitting in her Granddaddy's chair watching TV, 1972. 

Historically this date...
1890 – The U.S. Congress establishes Sequoia National Park.

2003 – A magnitude-8.0 earthquake strikes just offshore HokkaidōJapan.

And births this date include...
1929 – Barbara Walters, American broadcaster

1944 – Michael Douglas, American actor and producer

An idiot. Diagnosed with throat cancer and he's smoking!
There is even a picture of his wife Catherine Jones smoking when she was pregnant! Two idiots.

1951 – Mark Hamill, American actor


1952 – Christopher Reeve, American actor (d. 2004)

1961 – Heather Locklear, American actress and model

Everyone needs a mug shot!

Today is the 20th wedding anniversary of two special people...
Jack and Gracie Elliott. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS! xo
Both Jack and Gracie are LASD ret.

Today is also the birth date of my maternal Grandmother, Isabelle Dunbar Mills. Born 1872 in Glasgow Scotland, died 1964 in Los Angeles. This taken in 1958 in front of my folk's house. Back row is Nanno and I. (her nickname) and in front is my oldest sister Betty's daughter MaryAnn, my sister Marion's son Andy, and Betty's daughter Nancy. 

Yesterday I basically did NOTHING! The rain continued all day and all the windows were open and all that cool air came in. So refreshing!  Bruiser was bored, so he climbed all over my desk and computer...

Then he went out on the porch and napped on the glider.
Dude napped near me...

The rain started about 6am and continued steadily for about the next 14 hours. We ended up with 1½" !!!! Wow. "They" said the rainfall in Medford was a record.

Dinner was pizza. I bought a premade crust, can of oysters, can of clams, Contidina Pizza Squeeze, Alfredo sauce, a giant Oregon garlic (that is supposed to be mild), can of artichoke hearts, cut up that garlic, shredded some of Jeannie's zucchini, and chopped a couple of her purple peppers..... cheese on top was Mozzarella and Parmesan.

It would have been PERFECT if I hadn't used that garlic. It was so strong and bitter. So, going to have to make some changes and get rid of the garlic.

A new TV show has my attention... NCIS New Orleans with Scott Bakula (Mmmmm....). 
I like the whole cast. Mark Harmon from NCIS is one of the show's executives. They have some great "Loozeeanna accents"! The first show aired on CBS, Tuesday night.

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