Headed into Grants Pass yesterday noon-ish ... Just love some of the clouds...

But the smoke was back in....

It was haircut day, but first met up with Jennifer at The Climate for lunch..

Jennifer had a 'wedge salad' (lettuce wedge, tomato, red onion, peppered bacon, and smoked blue cheese dressing) and a humongous 'bacon burger' (seasoned 1/2 pound beef burger topped with crispy bacon, smoked mozzarella, shredded lettuce, tomato, sweet and spicy pickles and fried onions on a toasted parmesan bun!)

I had the Spinach Arugula and Roasted Beet salad (baby spinach, arugula, roasted beats, candied pecans, fresh mozzarella, sun-dried cherries, and roasted apple vinaigrette)  and the Smoked Salmon Roasted Corn Chowder (house smoked salmon, sweet roasted corn, bacon, onion, celery, carrot and fresh herbs simmered in a rich cream)
OMG, all of it was sooooooooooooooooooooo good. GOING back SOON!!!! On the 18th they will come out with their "pumpkin ale". Gotta try that. Sounds wonderful. SOW Sistas, you ready to try this???
On top of great food the servers were so nice and efficient.. Jenny and the hostess Wendy. The GM, Mike, came over and talked to us. He's really doing a good job. Thanks Mike.
Next was my hair cut and fun chat with Leah my hairdresser pal at Sheer Perfection up at 1457 NE 6th Street (541-479-0018) owned by Candy (who is very fun and NICE!)

When I was just about to leave, Leah's BF Jordan came by. The Sow Sistas met him out at Schmidt Winery on one of our outings. Neat guy!
 This was a year ago August.

Anyway, so left there, stopped at Brian's office, and then the post office, and the bank. Home at last. Dude and Bruiser were happy. I was gone a long time!
Some snacks, wine, conversations with Jennifer about the lunch and a chat with my pal Linda down in Woodland.
Sunset was wild (from all the smoke!)

15 minutes apart...

I was outside taking pictures and Bruiser was accessing his next move.

TV, news, asleep in the chair!
Bruise was bad, didn't come in. I went to bed and woke at 1:30. There he was on the porch sleeping on Dude's porch bed!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

September 12th
National Chocolate Milkshake Day
(Oh man, I can taste it already!!!)
Chocolate Milkshake Day is an opportunity for chocoholoics to savor. The weather may have cooled off. But, our appetite for chocolate, specifically chocolate milkshakes, hasn't cooled off one iota.
What a great day this will be! Simply combine a little milk with some chocolate ice cream, add some extra chocolate syrup, and mix it well in a blender. That's the fixins for mixin up a big, tall glass of chocolate milkshake.  
On a diet? Not today. A lot of people celebrate Chocolate Milkshake Day with not one, but two or more chocolate milkshakes.
Bottoms up!

What a fun blog today. Full of birthdays and happiness.

Never recognized it before - but back in the day, Linda Grey combed the front of her hair like a certain multi-colored blonde celebrity running for President. She sure has aged gracefully.

It is wonderful to be around people blessed with great voices. Speaking or singing.

The scent of ashes from the Fullerton fire still fill the air. But the cool off has begun here. YAY!

What a horrific event that train crash was in Chatsworth. Son Eric who is now an engineer on Metrolink says they are not allowed to even turn on their phones while on the train. Good! The engineer on that freight train is the x-husband of one of our Curves ladies. He was injured but thankfully survived. The Metrolink engineer who caused it all was not so lucky.

Oh man, you do have some wonderful lunch places up there. Your food looks like something from a culinary magazine! That burger cracked me up! She probably had to eat it with a fork! LOL

LOL I just went back to look at Linda Gray's earlier hair style. Yup! Lydia is right. It looks great on her tho.

Have a great Saturday!! Oh that is a great photo of Jerry, Dave and Cliff. What wonderful memories.

XO Trisha

The engineer lived across the street from a friend's friend in La Crescenta. The family was so embarrassed about what he caused they came to clean out his house and stayed to the back so the neighbors wouldn't see them. Sad, wasn't their fault. Yes, the lunch was amazing. Jennifer did cut the burger in half and took the other half home! It was a handful for sure! xo
