Smoke ~ Cool Temps ~ Porch w/ Bruiser & Dude ~ Wildfires Update ~ Stuffed Sweet Peppers


Good 60º super smokey morning!

Yesterday morning about 9am it started sprinkling. It was cool and breezy. Nice. The sprinkles lasted about 20 minutes. When it first started the electricity flickered off and on once for about 1 second. By 10:30 it was 73º and 55% humidity. ICK. Then by 2pm it was still only 76º. Sooooooooooooooooo nice. I even took a glass of wine out on the porch to sit and enjoy. I never turned on the AC yesterday or even a ceiling fan.


The Bruise and Dude joined me on the porch. Bruiser couldn't figure out his favorite place to lay....


.... on Dude's bed!




 
Our ODF has a site where you can check the stats on the wildfires: http://wildfireoregondeptofforestry.blogspot.com/

 
I got to run "5 Miles". We took the trash to the trash can and put it on the road. Dude was a happy camper to run. Been too hot for him to do that lately. By noon yesterday it was only 77
 
 
 
Breakfast was cottage cheese, honey, and blueberries. YUMMMMM!

 
LOL ...Got this from Gator...
Humor from a show on Canadian TV, where a black comedian said he misses Bill Clinton.  "Yes, that's right - I miss Bill Clinton!" He was the closest thing we ever go to having a real black man as President. *He played the sax. *He smoked weed. *He had his way with ugly white women. *Even now? Look at him ... His wife works, and he doesn't!
And, he gets a check from the government every month.
*Manufacturers announced today that they will be stocking America's shelves this week with "Clinton Soup", in honor of one of the nation's distinguished men. It consists primarily of a weenie in hot water. *Chrysler Corporation is adding a new car to it's line to honor Bill Clinton. The Dodge Drafter will be built in Canada. *When asked what he thought about foreign affairs, Clinton replied, "I don't know, I never had one." *The Clinton revised judicial oath: "I solemnly swear to tell the truth as I know it, the whole truth as I believe it to be, and nothing but what I think you need to know." *Clinton will be recorded in history as the only President to do Hanky Panky between the Bushes.
 
How about this for a good little hors d'oeuvres:
Small sweet peppers cut in half and filled with your favorite guacamolé. YUMMMMMM

Bruiser cracks me up. He acts like he is king of the castle and the Dude just tolerates him. lol

Glad your temps were lower yesterday.

We have bags and bags of peppers of all kinds from John's garden. I really don't know what to do with them except give them away. If we had grown lots of tomatoes I would make salsa. Becky made us some pickled jalapenos which contained sliced carrots and onions pickled. It was so good.

Have another cool day!

Good morning. Just a hunch- the comedian may have been Dave Chappell.
Stay out of the smoke.

Ironic. Tom Brady is using the same code of evidence as Hillary Clinton. Not that I care. Using the same measure of circumstantial evidence- the league is as guilty with willfully going over the top on the punishment. The day in question- a reasonable person recognizes the irrelevance. As is the Player's Union- for failing to notice the built-in conflict of interest in how appeals are handled.

May you get to enjoy a respite from the heat and the smoke go away.
