Flicker ~ Hillbilly Motorcycle ~ Corn Toss Side Dish ~ Lovella ~ Paul ~ Alert 1

Good 44ยบ somewhat cloudy morning.

I was by the back door and saw something drinking water from one of the water  tubs back there. Looked strange so I got real close to the curtain and it was a bird just like this ... WoodpeckersIt's a Northern Flicker. Really neat looking. So I looked it up and found a site with the sounds they make. I had heard these and wondered what they were...

This from Trish Bowler:

Here you go Mr. your mokoko friends!
"Mokoko" is what my granddaughter Alex (she's the one who named me Bobo!) called Grandpa Jerry's Harley and Uncle Brian's Harley.

Corn Toss Side Dish:

1 T olive oil, 1 small sweet onion chopped, 1 red pepper chopped, 2 ears corn on the cob kernels removed, 1 large zucchini sliced, 1/4 c chopped fresh parsley, black pepper, 1/4 c grated Parmesan divided.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add onions and red peppers, cook and stir 3 minutes. Stir in corn and zucchini. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender. Remove from heat. Stir in parsley, black pepper, and 2 T cheese. Top with remaining cheese.

Picture of the day.... (from Neil Ornstein..LASD ret)
Tons of memories here. All those neat old cars!!! And look, no traffic!!!

So, yesterday.... gadz, after sleeping a little later and then the danged computer (AOL) went haywire... I was in my PJ's til noon! Didn't get a lot done. Too much socialization on one day (Sunday!) Cooked some boneless skinless chicken thighs in the crockpot for Dude. Ordered an Alert 1 system for me.  It's like Life Alert, but a better deal. It hooks to my hard line phone and I will have a bracelet with a button on it and will make me feel better if something should happen...

"Help I've fallen and I can't reach my wine!"

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