Ok, today is Throw Back Thursday....
Hmmmm 1952 ... Linda (Watterlond) Terror (Wilson S'63)and me ....

I like how numbers play... on my way to Medford yesterday I had gone 18 miles and it was 9:18. By the time I had gone 22 miles it was 9:22 !
Yesterday I had an appointment with my rheumatologist, Dr. Theerapol Prasertsuntarasai. I know, easy for me to say! Not. I call him Dr. T. He is from Thailand. Super nice and a good doc! He had my hands and feet x-rayed. 

What I thought and others had said was a "ganglion cyst" he said was not. 
It's a lump on the lower part of my thumb caused by my rheumatoid arthritis.
And on the bottom of my right foot is a really tender spot. He was not sure what it could be, so for the x-rays. He told me and then reiterated to "take ibuprofen" often!!! OK Boss!
The diagnosis will be up on the patient portal by today.

After that exciting time I decided to make a run by Costco for a couple cases of chicken stock.

The parking lot was so jammed, there were not any parking places except out in the boonies. No thanks. Not going to walk forever in this heat (100º). So I decided to go to Cash and Carry....

I like their prices and they have Torani sugar free peanut butter syrup I like in my coffee.. lemon juice, egg nog syrup, bloody mary mix, and coffee creamer cheaper than Safeway...

I also got some canned artichoke quarters, cheaper than anywhere else.... and canned chopped clams (clams and linguine!) 

and they had the chicken stock, cheaper than Costco! Yes! Also got a couple bags of fresh veggies (broccoli, cauliflower,carrots,snap peas and a bag of broccoli slaw) and some tomatoes. Great shopping trip... Great prices!

Came home, unloaded the car. At the gate was a box from my nephew's wife Melinda. They have recently moved from Reno to Lake Tahoe where Jimmy runs a real estate office. Mel sent me a bunch of Christmas ornaments that had been Marions. Some were Mother's. I will have to go through them and see all that is there.
1698 – Thomas Savery patents the first steam engine.
.... no wonder the steam engine cartoon was named Thomas!

1881 – Charles J. Guiteau shoots and fatally wounds U.S. President James Garfield, who eventually dies from an infection on September 19.

1937 – Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan are last heard from over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to make the first equatorial round-the-world flight.

1962 – The first Wal-Mart store opens for business in Rogers, Arkansas.

And births this date include...
1932 – Dave Thomas, American fast food entrepreneur (Wendy's) (d. 2002)

1946 – Ron Silver, American actor (d. 2009)

1964 – José Canseco, Cuban-born American baseball player

1964 – Ozzie Canseco, Cuban-born American baseball player

1986 – Lindsay Lohan, American actress
About 3:30 yesterday afternoon I went down to PJ and Dave's to take PJ a little birthday present. We had a wine and chatted. She and Dave were both exhausted from working all day in the heat. Dave works repairing tractors and riding lawnmowers etc in town. Said it was 109º under the pop up he was working under. PJ does pet sitting and watering for the people she pet sits for. Woody, their new cat is shy but Neko let me take her picture...

Dinner was salad reruns.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

July 2nd
World UFO Day

World UFO Day is an awareness day for people to gather together and watch the skies for unidentified flying objects. The day is celebrated by some on June 24, and others on July 2. June 24 is the date that aviator Kenneth Arnold reported what is generally considered to be the first unidentified flying object sighting in the United States,[1] while July 2 commemorates the supposed UFO crash in the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident.
The stated goal of the July 2 celebration is to raise awareness of "the undoubted existence of UFOs" and to encourage governments to declassify their files on UFO sightings.

What a great haul you had from that market. Cheaper than Costco is even better! It seems that the Costco parking lot is always full! We went there the other night and wondered why we could find a parking space so easily, a handicapped one right up front. Well, no wonder, they had just closed! :(

Every time I see Thomas the train engine I think of Matthew. It's been his fave ever since he was tiny. I used to send him books about Thomas for Christmas. JJ used to buy him the trains.

Stay in and stay cool!

Hi Sue-
Hoping they get a handle on your RA! I was diagnosed 2 yrs ago and have tried about everything! I now do stomach injections of Cimzia monthly, but still struggle. I have a great Dr who also teaches at UCLA.
So as YOU start this new adventure you'll be in my thoughts!
