Good 46º clear morning.
Breakfast yesterday was one of Dave's Killer Bread Million Dollar Buns:
OMG, his bread is soooooooooooooo good. Check the link for where to buy in Oregon and California. Anyway, made a sandwich out of the leftover meatloaf and veggies. OMGOOOD!
Jorge and crew (2 helpers) showed up about 8:30 to work on the barn. Using brushes to get off any loose paint the pressure washing missed
and then to start painting on the undercoat.
Dude wanted to stay outside and watch! (Yeah, right.)
Done until next weekend. They will be back to put on another coat of paint and finish the trim.
Friday afternoon I met up with Brian and family at their house to take Tucker's birthday gifts to him. His birthday is today but they left early Saturday am to head to Eugene to the Ducks/Georgia football game at 11. All the balloons were ready! BTW the Ducks beat Georgia 61-28 !!
What a game! AND... on the big screen in the stadium they had Tucker and Sami on it! Jen got a picture. I can't wait to see it.
Then after the game they spent the night in Portland and a visit to the zoo today.
Tucker is 11 years old. I got him a gift card to the Grants Pass bicycle shop so he can pick out a new bike.
Also a framed picture of one of his fav Duck's player, Marcus Mariota.
(He was Ducks first Hiseman Trophy winner and is now with the Tennessee Titans.) http://www.goducks.com/ViewArticle.dbml?ATCLID=205238133
He's ranked up there with Manning and Brady! Amazing young man.
Me and my boy!!! ♥
Today is also a special birthday, Steve Voors (LASD ret). HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE!!! Hope it's GREAT! (With his bride, Barbara, a few years ago!)
Steven Scott Voors... aka "10-30 Dude"! Steve and Jerry were radio car partners and good friends. Jerry nicknamed him '10-30 Dude' because 10-30 is a radio code for "does not conform to regulations" ! LOL. Here at Jerry's retirement in 1998:
Steve and Tucker share the same middle name... which makes Steve .. SSV .. and Tucker is TSP... teaspoon!
And... today is Dee and Dale's lab, Sami's 7th birthday. Happy Birthday Sami!

She called him shortly before his death, offering to visit him, but he did not want her to see him in his condition. She phoned him one last time, the night before his death and, according to Billie Jean herself in an HBO documentary about her, the last thing she told Riggs was "I love you."
