Deer ~ Pumpkin Smoothie ~ Mary & Gil ~ Recreational Marijuana ~ Car Wreck ~ Lovella

Good (burrrrr) 39º morning. Clear and gonna be warm.
93º again yesterday. Come on Summer.... GO! We need Fall and RAIN!!!!!
Can you believe it's the last day of September already??? Sheeesh.................... going too fast! And lucky us, tomorrow is the first day of legal recreational marijuana in this state. Joy.
I keep three tubs of water in the back and one in the front and with the critters around here I have to fill them once a day! Yesterday I was going out the front door and momma doe was drinking...

How about this for a 'Fall' smoothie... 1/2 banana, 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt, 3/4 cup almond or vanilla soy milk, few shakes of pumpkin spice, 4-5 ice cubes.

Yesterday was exciting.... some vacuuming and laundry.

In the afternoon I got a call from Gil & Mary (Fancher) Zavala. Both of them W'63 Wilsonites. They have been traveling and now on their way to their daughter's place on the coast. They camped with their trailer at The Valley of The Rogue Park... I picked them up and we drove to Grants Pass to Taqueria Mexico.. on H Street between 6th and 7th ... 

It was sooooooooooooo good to see these two. Been so many years. I think maybe the last time we saw each other was at the first class reunion and that was over 40 years ago.

Food was great and we had a fun visit!
My Flautas de Pollo with rice, beans, guacamole and sour cream. OMGOOOOD!

They will stay at the coast and then head back to Colorado. Gil's family owned and ran Hanks on Alhambra Avenue in El Sereno. Mary was in Jobs Daughters with me.
Oh and BTW, in regards to recreational marijuana, it's been in Colorado for some time now. Mary and Gil said the increase of teenage use is obvious and the rate of traffic accidents is up too! Guess that's what we have to look forward to here.
Speaking of car wrecks... on my way into town yesterday there was this wreck in front of the high school ...
Nobody in the vehicle, tow truck was there. That MaryJane shit doesn't start til tomorrow!!!!!!

National Drink Beer Day

Beer has been brewed prior to written history. But ironically, the oldest known recipe set down by man appears to be one for brewing beer, found on stone tablets in Sumer, in southern Mesopotamia, the “fertile crescent” or “cradle of civilization” between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers that includes modern Iraq, northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey, and southwestern Iran.
Beer is the most frequently-consumed beverage in the world, after water and tea! Some scholars believe that it has been brewed since the sixth millennium B.C.E. By 4000 B.C.E., the Babylonians were brewing at least sixteen varieties of beer (when you see all of the different styles in this glossary, you won’t be surprised at that number). The Pharaohs of Egypt paid their workers with jugs of beer (later, the Romans would pay their legions in salt, leaving us with the phrase, “worth his salt” rather than “worth his beer”). Beer types—ale, pale ale, bock, pilsner, and lager.
