Polar Vortex ~ Small Rant ~ Lydia&Gerry ~ Tasty's ~ Dog Treats ~ Cappuccino

Good 51º cloudy overcast no rain in sight morning. That polar vortex in Alaska is supposed to bring it on for the whole country..... we'll see. Never heard of that term before this year... here's and explanation:
Hmmmm..... stand by for the ram! Voters in this country are idiots and have proven it.

Bull-shillary will just take over where BO (or as my friend Cathy calls him, "OVamit"!) leaves off. WE ARE SCREWED! The Republicans have not come up with one good idea for a candidate. What is up with them???? Frustrating. DON'T run Jeb Bush. DON'T run a woman. Run a STRONG man with military background! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............
Today is a special day for my friend Lydia and her hubby Gerry Plunk .... 39 years together. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS! (I still don't have a picture of you and Gerry, L!)

Yesterday Nancy Perry came by and we went to Grants Pass for a new lunch experience. Tasty's Samich's. Eric is the owner. They are next door to the now defunct The Bistro at 1212 NW 6th Street. 
We both had the pastrami with a couple of Eric's homemade sauces. The bun was nice and warm and yummy. Very tasty. Filling too!!! 
They have a number of other sandwiches... pulled pork, roast beef.... Great for a quick sit down or take out.

Made a quick stop at PetCo for dog food for Nancy's Skeeter and chicken jerky for my Dude. Walking out the door was Jeannie and Bill. I got to try out a new bacon/cheese treat I bought for Chaka. Purina Beggin' Poppers... 
She loved them!! She generally gobbles treats down and swallows them whole. These are small but she chewed them! If your dog likes to jump and catch treats this one is fun.. you take the treat, press it into the spot on the top of the jar and it "POPS" up so your pooch can catch it!

The street was crowded with cars and we discovered an accident had occurred... somebody's car got the rear end smashed pretty good.

Then home to lots of sunshine here and a happy to see mom dog and cat! Dinner was a couple leftover bites, since still full from Tasty's sandwich!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

November 8th
National Cappuccino Day

CAPPUCCINOTwo shots of espresso topped with steamed and foamed milk, in equal thirds. It is named for the cap of foam on the top, which somewhat resembles the hooded robe of the Roman Catholic Capuchin friars. It can be topped with ground cinnamon or other spices, or with ground chocolate or sweetened cocoa powder.
