9-11 Remembered ~ WHOOT Patriots! ~ Liz O'Connor ~ Senator Baertschiger ~ Errands ~ Good Cop Story

Good 53º clear morning. Predictions for temps:

Yesterday 100º at 3pm, 101º at 3:15pm, 103º at 3:45pm (the weather guy LIED!) So, it will probably be that high again today. Joy.

9-11-01 was a HORRIBLE Day. So sad so many lost their lives. This is a day of remembrance. We all know what we were doing and where we were when this tragedy struck. I for one, cannot relive it. I am not turning on the TV. I refuse to watch that idiot in the White House talk about it. I don't want to see the pictures again and again. It was heartbreaking and still is to this day. God Bless all those who died and all those who worked tirelessly to save lives.
Last nights Patriots/Steelers Game...OMG!!! GREAT GAME!! Of course my Patriots beat the Steelers 28-21! I was so pea green watching the rain coming down at Gillette Stadium. 

My dental hygienist and friend, Liz O'Connor is celebrating her birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIZ!!!

Yesterday was the Jackson County Republican Women's luncheon at Twin Creeks in Central Point.

Our special speaker was Oregon Senator Herman Baertschiger.... Thanks Herman for saying what we all agree with! Thanks for your dedication.
His mom Karen, a friend of mine, joined us.

We had a really nice time. Lunch was good... salad, lemonade, Brussels sprouts, some kind of cheese filled tortilla with a gravy (GOOD!) and a "might be a scone" that was really GOOD!
Our "stand in President", Phyllis Fletcher, presented Karen with a rose. She said "We've never had a speaker's mom attend!"
I left there and stopped at Rogue Creamery
to see if they had the variegated bow tie pasta, but no, not where I got it. Will keep looking.... Probably Trader Joe's! 
Then because it was on the way, I stopped at Seven Oaks farm to get some corn. Well, dang, because "of the smoke and heat" they didn't pick any yesterday! Fuey. Here is their sunflower field.... you can barely see the mountains...
... a metallic horse decoration in the parking lot...
Back on the freeway heading to Rogue River...
 Then to RR where I got gas. This is the wall art on the building next to the 76 Station...

Then to the firehouse to drop off my Mercy Flights membership, Rays for some chicken thighs, Ace for trash compactor bags and to discuss some post-football with the guys. Then it was to Rogue River High School where I delivered copies of the US Constitution in booklet form for the 9th graders .. Provided through our education fund with the Jackson County Republican Women. Then HOME! Yeah. Cool house. Nice!
Chuck (Patty & Cliff's son) & Linda's car broke down last month, after meeting Linda's daughter & her husband, to pick up their 3 kids & 3 dogs, while Nicole & Jeremy went on to California. The had just picked up the kids & dogs when the car quit. They had called a tow truck The tow was on the way when a policeman pulled up and then another police car pulled up and then the tow truck arrived. One officer took Linda & the three boys in his car and the other officer took Chuck & the 3 dogs in his car and took all of them home, with the tow truck behind them with the car. The tow truck even pushed the car into the garage so Chuck could work on it the next day. 

See, there ARE good cops out there, irregardless of what OVamit and his racially aggravating cronies and the BLM (no, not the Bureau of Land Management!) say.
The sunset last night was pretty, but that colorfulness is caused by the smoke coming up from the California fires...
Dinner, since feeling 100% better today, was bow tie pasta and veggies while watching football.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

You are WELCOME, my friend. Hope you have a GREAT day!!! xo

Today is a sad day indeed. I am surprised that you didn't mention Benghazi on this date. Let's just hope and pray that the Dems don't shut down the hearings on that. We all want and need to know what and why Hil liar y and Obummer refused to send help to the ambassador and those poor American heroes who died there that night. Makes me furious to think about it!!

Glad you attended the Republican luncheon yesterday. If that lady Karen is standing next to her son, she looks entirely too young to be his mother. Don't you think so?

XO Trisha

Oregon Sue said...

Sorry about the Benghazi thing. Actually did't think about it being the same day. Darn. Yes, Karen is a young looking mom!!! Probably had Herman when she was 5~~~ LOL. ox

Lydia said...

Thank you for reminding us about the importance of the day. And for Trisha adding Benghazi event.

The Secretary of State asked "what difference does it make" how these men died. Of course it does. It appears that policies and procedures were changed before, during and after the events when our ambassador and other Americans died. Why certainly matters.

Then Secretary Clinton was conducting State business on her personal device, stored on her personal server. Does anyone believe there was no business conducted by the Secretary of State in the weeks leading up to and after "her friend" died while on assignment for this nation? That simply isn't credible.Messages to her from or on behalf of the Ambassador were probably not about yoga.

I am going to light a candle in remembrance of 9/11 and Benghazi.
