Good 49º cloudy drizzling morning.
Don't think the rain last night was measurable, but everything is wet and the smoke has ceased on the burn pile!
Some radar over us...
Those weather people never get it right. Here's the predictions for this week through next...
Praying for good election results today!
Today a very special birthday... my long time pal Berta (Sommer) Long (now she goes by..Bobbe). . HEY GIRLFRIEND, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
We became friends back in about 1965 when George and I lived in an apartment at 908 S. Margarita Avenue in Alhambra. I recall looking out the window facing the parking lot and here was a very pregnant woman cleaning out a black 1957 Chevy Nomad! I though her husband must be a monster to make a pregnant woman do that! Later, of course, I learned that when you are pg, you have tons of energy and do stuff like that! LOL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERTA♥ !!!!
Remember this place Berta...... found this on Google Maps!
Football last night...

I had to go into Grants Pass yesterday and before I left, here was Bruiser in the boat! It has a lot of water in the bottom and he likes to drink it! We (Brian and Dan) brought it down from the pond for a guy to come look at, but he was not interested. It now needs to be turned back upside down so it's not filling up with rain! Can't do it by myself!
Then he decided to climb a tree! Nut!
First to the car dealership for some work on my ride...
My car will be done Wednesday...so they gave me a free loaner...
It's a Buick Encore. Nice, but I sure miss my big old truck!!!!!
Then off to the health food store... The clerk was really nice. I had on a black hoodie with USMC on the front and he asked if my grandson was a Marine. HUH???? Sigh... old is old. I told him, no, I married a Marine and gave birth to one! HE congratulated me and said his grandfather and father were both Marines! Cool. http://sunshinefoodandvitamin.com/
A couple friends told me about getting the melatonin pill.
I tend to wake in the middle of the night and stay awake for 2-3 hours. This might do the trick and get me back to sleep. We'll see. I will let you know.
MELATONIN OVERVIEW INFORMATION
Then off to Safeway for fresh veggies, cat food, dog treats, wine, and some 'extras' for some crazy recipe I may come up with!
Dinner was reruns while I watched the Colts/Giants....
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

The General Election is always the first Tuesday in November
It's a revolution... a peaceful one, where majority rules!!
Once every four years, we get the opportunity to elect a new president. Every six years, we elect our U.S. senators. U.S. congressman are elected every two years. This peaceful revolution, allows us to retain good elected officials, and overturn those whose performance is poor, or whose beliefs do not match the majority. While Democracy may not be perfect, it's better than any other type of government on the planet. And, it offers us freedoms and safeguards that do not exist in many other countries.
Our founding fathers had the wisdom to create a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. It is every American's right and privilege, to vote for our government officials. So, we hope you exercise your right on this day, to vote for the candidate of your choice.
While apathy and discontent can creep into even the best of societies, we believe that makes it more important for us TO VOTE.
Please exercise your inalienable right and go out and vote!
