Madeline Alyssa ~ Blessings ~ Lazy Cat ~ Food Storage Tip ~ Be Nice ~ Trees Inc ~ Doggie PJs ~ Sami aka Snuggle Bug

Good 59º clear sunny morning. Yesterday - 100º. Supposed to be cooler today. Ha!
Had a call from Aaron (my step-son, Jerry's son) last evening... He and Marie had a baby girl yesterday! She was 6#8oz and 19½" long. Her name is Madaline Alyssa ...

Of course her last name is Maxwell so with those initials we can call her MAM! Welcome to the world pretty girl! Congratulations Aaron and Marie!!! Good job!!!
There just have been too many tragedies lately... the Marines and Sailor that were shot by the lunatic, the fire and destruction of vehicles in the Cajon Pass (which by the way, my pal Trish's son JJ who drives a semi just by minutes avoided the mess by taking a detour!), the bridges collapse on I-10 between So. Cal desert and Phoenix, and up here an 83 year old man heading north back to Washington hit a tree in Central Point and his car caught fire ... he was burned horribly (no help to get him out of his car.. middle of the day! nobody stopped!!) and his two dogs died in the fire. Count your blessings folks!

Ok, now for a smile....

Here's today's food storage tip:
Scallions can last three times longer when they are stored in a jar of water. Trim the amount you need and they will continue to grow.

Historically this date...
1873 – At Adair, IowaJesse James and the James-Younger Gang pull off the first successful train robbery in the American Old West.

1969 – Space RaceNeil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin become the first humans to walk on the Moon, during the Apollo 11 mission (July 20 in North America).

1983 – The world's lowest temperature is recorded at Vostok StationAntarctica at−89.2 °C (−128.6 °F).

And births this date include....
1899 – Ernest Hemingway, American writer, Nobel laureate (d. 1961)
He was also a collector of polydactyl cats, like my Bruiser! His home in Florida is a museum and they still have a lot of his cat relatives there.
1924 – Don Knotts, American actor (d. 2006)

1948 – Snooty, the oldest known Florida manatee

1951 – Robin Williams, American comedian/actor (d.2014)

Heading out yesterday to make a quick run into town to mail letters, pick up a package, get prescriptions, and a tray of chicken thighs for Dude.... at the end of my driveway was the Trees Inc truck.

He was nice, I apologized for making him move.
Got the shopping done and some items for dinner. Came home, got everything put away, and was a sweaty mess. It was 94º out there and I am READY FOR FALL!!
Speaking of Fall... Jennifer gave me these NEAT pajamas... dogs all over them wearing glasses! Will be so nice and snuggy!

Dinner was a can of Progresso Lite beef and vegetable soup. Not in the mood to cook~! Watched 2 Hallmark movies but fell asleep during the second one!
Brian texted me this photo of Sami.... ready for sleepytime.... he said it was like finding ET! LOL

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

Good morning Miss Sue,

Love the blog today. And the new baby is so beautiful. Arron seemed a nice guy with a sense of humor like Jerry's. Congrats to them!

Love the Sherman Block birthday tribute also. He was a nice guy that always was kind to us ladies. I will never forget our Chili cook-offs.

CONGRATULATIONS GRANDMA!! Baby girl is just adorable! I know they are so happy and proud of her.

Yes, son John just missed the big freeway fire. Thank you Lord. Such a terrible thing but we got a downpour of rain for two days and it put out the fires. We sure needed that rain. Nothing scares me like fires. How sad about that old man who died in his car fire.

I remember the day so well that our guys walked on the moon. I have photos with Buzz Aldrin. Nice Republican guy!

Thanks for the tip about the green onions. Didn't know that.

Adorably cute pic of Sami and her stuffed buddies!

XO Trisha

Yes, JJ was LUCKY! And the old man didn't die in the car fire, but his two dogs did. Sad for him. Yes, the green onions... I have some in a glass on the sink as we speak! xo

Congratulations!!! What a darling girl. Can't believe all the hair!!!! Also, when I saw the picture of Sami, it reminded me of ET, (I still have my ET) before I even read what Brian said.. D

Oregon Sue said...

LOL, funny about ET! xo

The little vases like are used for violets or toothpicks are also good for green onions.

I am very blessed.
