Throw Back Thursday ~ Happy Tears ~ Cooperisms ~ Rue 26 ~ Thursday Nite Football ~ Terri Prim

Good 40º clear and sunny morning. Predictions for a hotter day, in the low 80ºs today.

10-2 in radio code means "receiving well".

Throw Back Thursday:
This picture taken in 1975 when Jerry and the children and I went on a camping trip up the California coast. We stopped at this park area by a small bay. I saw this otter and offered him a piece of bread. He came and took it from my hand very gently. Then he scooted over by the water to eat it. He came back for seconds and thirds! The Park Ranger we talked to didn't believe I hand fed a wild otter. Wish we had digital cameras back then, but this proof was on film that had yet to be developed! HEY, ask Jeannie... I AM the animal whisperer! LOL.

I put this video on my blog a year ago, but it warrants another look. Keep the Kleenex close... happy tears

These from Vivia... called Cooperisms ... he's in New Zealand

 Two guys walk into a building'd think at least one of them 
would have seen it.

Phone answering machine message - '...If you want to buy marijuana, 
press the hash key...'

A guy walks into the psychiatrist wearing only gladwrap for shorts. 
The shrink says, 'Well, I can clearly see you're nuts.' 

Yesterday I paid bills.... whoopee. Mowed the lawn.... whoopee. Stayed pretty cool and I was in sweats in the house with warm socks on!!

Ok, so dinner at Rue 26. Mike and Laurie:
and Tom and I (NOT a date!!! Just mutual friends with Mike! DON'T go there!!)

When I first arrived I was early so sat in the bar and had a glass of wine. A couple sat down next to me. He looked OLD. Had long hair, ponytail, gray beard, etc. (You Wilsonites will get a kick out of this) After a little chatter found out he graduated from Compton High in 1963! (I graduated from Wilson in 1963) He even went to Lincoln High for a while. LOL, small world. Anyway ....

I ordered the Grilled Sockeye Salmon with chile lime butter sauce, grilled asparagus-zucchini-carrots, with herbed saffron basmati rice. OMGOOOOOD!!!
The food was good and so was the wine, but the restaurant is so dark and gloomy inside. Especially the bar area. Didn't like that. For breakfast yesterday I had the leftovers with an egg...

Thursday Night Football:
Who are you rooting for? 

A special birthday today is friend Terri Prim,who was the station secretary at Avalon Station. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERRI!!!
I LOVE this picture of you Terri!!!

National Name Your Car Day

I've named mine 'Shadow'...

Name Your Car Day is today. Does your car have a name? Lots of people name their cars. People with big boats, name their boat, and we think nothing of it. So, why not name your car or truck!?

Every car has character and personality. We spend a lot of time in our cars, and caring for them. So, its only fitting that each car gets its own name.
Selecting a name should be made with care and consideration. Give your car a name that properly reflects its character. What you name you car should be a proper reflection of its character and performance, and your desires for your car. In general, guys names are for guys' cars, and girl names are for the cars that you ladies drive. Aside from that, selection of a name is wide open. But, be have feelings, too.
Here are some of our thoughts in selecting an appropriate name for your car:
  • Don't select wimpy names. That might give your car a personality complex and it will perform accordingly.
  • Do give a strong, aggressive name to sports cars and cars with powerful engines.
  • Sleek, sexy feline-like cars savor names that begin with "lady".
  • Old junkers are proud just to be around. You can call them just about anything. Try "Tramp", or "Old Yeller", "Old Blue".
  • Pick names to reflect your personality.
  • "Pickemup" trucks must have country names.
  • Don't give common names (like Joe, Mike or Sue)  to luxury cars. They beam over names like Reginald, Archibald, and Crystal.
