Good 48º cloudy morning.
Yesterday was the Boatnik Parade in Grants Pass. I would have liked to go, but thought it would be better to do stuff here.
Breakfast ... I sauteéd some sliced mushrooms in butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Added in some of Cliff's smoked pork. Then poured in egg whites (from a carton). Let that all cook. Dished it up and topped with mozzarella cheese. A side of Greek yogurt with tomatoes.
...and, sadly, my sister Marion died on this day in 2004. She had adult onset leukemia. Kristen and I got to visit with her in the second week of April and about two weeks later she was in the hospital and on morphine heavily sedated. I miss her so. Here's a picture of me with my sisters on June 14, 1975.... Betty on the left and Marion on the right.
We were best friends. She was 9 years older than me, the baby sister, and she always had to take me along ....
RIP dear sister of mine.
Yesterday three deer were relaxing in the shade up in the upper pasture....
My neighbor, Gerard, was cutting his pastures... after it's been turned and dried he will bale it.
When I go into my bathroom I am usually accompanied by Bruiser. This strange guy LOVES warm water. So I run the water and fill a cup for him.... "Warm water", really? Odd.

I posted this last year, but it's so neat... here it is again..
My friend Joan Driscoll who works at my vet's office posted this on her FB page. 9 Beagle dogs who spent their entire lives in cages in a testing lab run on grass for the first time. Their day of freedom! (Get out the Kleenex!)
Yesterday afternoon I sat on the porch and ate sunflower seeds and drank wine. The birds were out...
The clouds never really went away yesterday...
I guess it was nice for the Boatnik parade.
Watching the news last night and Mike Hannan's (former Rogue River Fire Chief) grandson Zac Hannan was on! It was a shot of him running the hurdles at the state finals in Eugene... He also ran the 100 and broke his record (10.76) and Grants Pass High School's record and took third. Third fastest person in the state of Oregon in the 100!!! AND his school took 1st place in the finals!!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
