Clouds ~ Berry & Poison Oak Bushes ~ Karen Blair ~ Tim Allen & Last Man Standing

Good 50º wispy cloudy morning...

Yesterday stayed clear and sunny and we hit 91º. Breezy and the weather guy kept saying a "chance" but not very good of rain maybe after the weekend. All the storms are moving north through Washington.
Yesterday morning after I was barely awake, Ted called from Evan's Pest Control. He was going to be here in 30 min to spray my berry bushes.... 
He got those all sprayed and even found some poison oak he sprayed. Didn't charge me for the spray, only the "house call" as he had sprayed them before but whatever he used, it was basically for the tar weed, didn't work, so he came back to do the job!

Breakfast yesterday... scrambled eggs with parsley and Parmesan cheese atop the tater tots I sauteéd with the mushrooms night before ... and some cottage cheese with sliced almonds...

Made a couple birthday cards and decided to take a run into town to get them mailed and pick up prescriptions.

This morning Jorge will be here early to finish up the barn painting....

Today would have been Karen Blair's birthday. She was born in 1964 and a member of our Jackson County Republican Women and Medford City Council member. Sadly she passed away this last June at the age of 50. She was a really neat gal and friend. RIP Karen, you are missed.

Dinner was reruns.
On TV was the season premier of Last Man Standing with Tim Allen. OMG, it was so funny. He starts off the first show of the season having been on a two month trip around the country for his store, Outdoor Man. Synopsis:
First Aired: Sep. 25, 2015 on ABC

Summary: Mike has returned from being on a fantastic two-month road trip traveling to far-flung places for Outdoor Man. It's great to be back with his wife, Vanessa, and their three daughters, but finds a lot has been going on at home as well as on the job since he's been away. To top it all off, a tornado is headed toward the Outdoor Man store and the Baxter home.

While he is filming himself prior to getting home he said how happy he will be to be back home in Colorado. He also said, "you know, that big square state that smells like pot!" Ohhhhhhh I was laughing. Actually he was born in Denver,Colorado and is a Republican who likes to slam left-wing and socialist agendas and OVamit! Yes! Since it is his show, he pretty much says what he thinks, except once he said OVamit was a communist and the NBC people made them take that line out! "Freedom of speech" HA!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

LOL YES! I love Last Man Standing. We never miss it and to make sure it's always recorded. Tim makes the funniest comments about Obama and the libs! He cracks me up. It must have been ABC who made him take out that line as he is on their channel. He sure didn't like that flowery master bedroom she had redone while he was gone. Too funny! I don't blame him as I love the rich mahogany look in there. That's the first time I have seen his "wife" really angry. Good show! He said in an interview "We are really going to drill Hillary this season"! LOL

The boys and I went to his "Tim, the Tool Man, Taylor" show at the studio. My boys were in a couple of the shots because they were sitting behind his neighbor "Wilson" who was in the TV "audience".

GOOD morning! Thank you for the breakfast suggestion- and for the link to Shriners. I've been meaning to look their history up.

Fingers crossed that all is well with Dr's check-up. I hoped to get to the fair this year- but after the symposium- I'm still whacked.

Fingers crossed here too L! xo
