Brunch Tap Rock ~ Sami's Pictures ~ Deer Block ~ Fawns & Doe ~ Coquette Bread ~ Hill-Liar-y's Email ~ Erika ~ Lemon Drop Martini

Good 50º somewhat cloudy/smokey morning.

The temps weren't too high yesterday, I think the high 80ºs but the smoke came in here heavy by afternoon. The smoke makes for pretty sunsets.... the only good thing! 8:15pm:
Yesterday morning I headed into Grants Pass to to meet Brian Jen Tucker and Sami at Tap Rock for brunch. OINK!!!!

The Rogue River, Caveman Bridge, Tap Rock on the left...

Sami's monster waffles, whip cream, chocolate syrup, sausage, and roll.

Brian's scrambled eggs, bacon, and biscuit and gravy...

Poor Tucker, hasn't eaten in a week!

Jen's oatmeal and strawberries....

Bobo's vegetarian omelette and fruit. (YUMMMMMM!)

Sami wanted to take pictures with my camera.... she had fun. So I made a Smilebox of her pictures....

I came back to RR and stopped in at Ace to get some deer blocks.
The deer love them... something to nibble on. When I got here the momma deer and two of her fawns were inside my front yard. How those babies got over the fence is the question. I walked towards the gate, mom bolted over the fence, and I opened the gate. The fawns were in a panic. I walked to the back door and when I came through the house and looked out the babies were with their mom!

I put out a deer block in the front by the water tub and one in the back on the grass... When I got up this morning the buck was nibbling on the one in the back.
In the afternoon I looked out and momma doe and one baby were in the yard. I finally figured out how the babies get in the yard... they go through the big openings in the fence!

Baby started nursing on mom, taken through the porch rail, you can see how the mom's skin/fur looks really bad.....

The bread loaf I bought at 7 Oaks Farm the other day comes from a local Central Point bakery. If you live in this area you can purchase the bread, not only at 7 Oaks, but also at Rogue Creamery, Ashland and Medford Farmers Markets...

Check their home page... and then check the breads they make:
This came from email pal, Gator...... Hill-liar-y's emails...

I'd say Sami took some cute ones! Thanks again for breakfast and the honey. Hope you have a great day! XOXO -Jen

Your family meals out are a good advertisement for the lifestyle possible where you live. Custard is one of my favorite foods.

Hillary is in a web of her own making. Anyone with minimum of knowledge re Security Clearances knows they can't have info on an unapproved site. You don't get to look at info just because you have a clearance. You must have a need to know- and be behind closed doors. A wand does not magically make info declassified- there are markings on documents where that is the case. When the job is over- access to the info is also gone. She never bothered to have a secured line- sounds like a rather pre-determined course of action for which I can think of no other reason than the advance scrubbing of history.

We do have a few good spots to eat up here. Not the variety of So. Cal, but GOOD! Hillary sucks! xo

Boy, out of all of you Jen eats the healthiest! Yours was healthy too but in a place like that with all the yummies I would throw caution to the wind and eat what Brian was eating only I would include hash browns. :)

YES!! Hil liar y sucks, Socialist Bernie Sanders sucks and of course Biden is just a gaff waiting to happen! What a line up! Is that the best they can do?? LOL

XO Trisha
