Napping Cat ~ Stock Dividend Check ~ Joke ~ Abby's For Tucker's Belated Party

Good 45º clear and gonna be hot again morning. Yesterday was 99º. UGH. Whine whine whine. Wine!

10-5 in radio code speak means "relay".

Pumpkin patch in Santa Paula, CA

I received a couple packages via UPS and opened them, left them on the table, and Bruiser decided that was the place to nap!

Now this is just amazing to me. I have had BofA stock since the early '70's from when I worked for them. The dividend checks have never been huge, but in the last few years, 4 times a year I'd get a check for 8¢ ! Imagine, spending first class postage to send me 8¢ ! Stupidity is at the top of BofA. Anyway, just got my latest check and it's HUGE...
Imagine.... 40¢ !!! Wow, where am I going to spend all that?

Thanks Karen Baertschiger for this!!!

After a long day on the golf course, I stopped at "Hooters" to see some friends and have some hot wings and drinks.

After being there a while, one of my friends asked me which waitress I would like to be stuck in an elevator with.

I told them, "The one who knows how to fix elevators." I'm old, tired, and pee a lot.

Yesterday off to Grants Pass for some quick shopping and then to Abby's for Tucker's Birthday party. I went in Fred Meyers and hadn't been in that store in a long time. Lots of changes. Very crowded. Then to Grocery Outlett and Dollar Store. I got some birthday balloons for Tucker and tied them to cylinders of glow sticks. He and his best friends had a sleep over last night in the tent trailer in Brian and Jen's backyard, so thought the glow sticks would be fun.

The party was a complete surprise for Tucker. Jen and Brian got there and set up, Jean brought the kids from swimming... I know Jen got a great picture of Tucker's surprised look! She'll share it later. They ordered pizza for and parents...
Brian handed out quarters to the kids to play the arcade games...
Tucker was a happy boy with all his winnings...

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

October 5th
Today is Do Something Nice Day. Go ahead, do something nice, anything nice. And, do it to, or for, another individual. It won't hurt......I promise.
Doing something nice for someone almost always evokes a very pleasant response. At the very least, it results in a smile. More likely, that person will do something nice to, or for you. And, best of all, doing something nice just might be contagious.
In keeping with the spirit of this day, set a goal to do something nice for someone. Perhaps, you can do this for several people. Then, sit back and watch the results!

Today is also the end of Oktoberfest in Germany

World Teacher Day
Teachers deserve a little recognition, and some thanks and appreciation. Aside from parents and direct family, who else has as much influence on the hearts ann minds of a child... your child? Teachers not only educate, but they help to shape and frame your child's beliefs, values, and behaviors.
Parents and students are encouraged to offer thanks and recognition today. A simple "thanks", or an ecard is sufficient.  
BTW: An apple a day may keep the  doctor away. But, teachers love to get apples.
If you are a teacher, Happy World Teacher Day!
