Yesterday I headed into Grants Pass. I had prayed for rain for the fires and I like it too... anyway, when I got into my car I got some sprinkles on the windshield. Nice. The clouds were awesome.....
I met Brian at his office. Jen, Tucker, Sami, and Jean met us and we went next door to The Vine for lunch...
The shirt my high school pal, Sandy (Todoran) Beck sent to me. It says "It took me 70 years to look this good"!!! (I've got one for her birthday too, albeit a little different!)
I had the Chicken Bruschetta with pesto sauce for lunch. Chicken on a bed of mixed greens with quinoa, tomatoes, shaved parmesan cheese. OMGOOOOOOOOD!!!!!
So nice, Ashley brought out a créme brûlée for me with a candle for dessert. Talk about AWESOMELY GOOD. Jen shared it with me and she LOVED it too!
Ashley and Dustin are the new owners of this beautiful great little restaurant..
Sami and Tucker....
I got two really funny cards.. one from Emily, who works for Brian, and one from Brian. Both with a $1!
Stopped at The Rogue Valley Humane Society
to drop off a cat bed and small dog (or large cat) bed. Then I went into the 'cat room' and pet the cats. Some so adorable ..like this one..
Next to they eye doctor... to pick up my new glasses. OH BOY, I can see better now!!!
Headed home, stopping to mail a letter and at Ace for some cracked corn. I got a TREAT..... Tall Paul, Big Dan, and Uncle Jimmy all sang Happy Birthday to me!!!!
Wow. Great guys!! I LOVED it!!!! xoxo
Looked out and here was the doe munching grass in the front yard. She saw me looking at her, and beat feet.....
Dinner last night was a couple artichokes.. one of my most favorite foods! I cook them in water after drizzling some lemon juice in each, then some infused olive oil, and top with Lawry's Garlic salt...
Served with mayonnaise and a little sriracha mayo mixed in, creamy garlic sauce, and some ranch dressing! Good dipping!!!
Then it was chair time, wine, and a few phone calls from pals. Next some Blue Bloods shows. GREAT DAY!!!! Thank you to all who sent me notes, cards, and posted on my FB page. I will get back to all of you! ♥
Yesterday was a hugely sad day for my friends Erika and Spence down in La Crescenta... they had their love, Jake, who was going downhill fast but kept on plugging away, even though he was miserable, put to sleep. He was one of the loves of their lives. RIP Jakey! You were so loved and gave the love in return. My heart to you Erika and Spence. You will remember this day, VJ Day, for your Valiant Jake!
All I know. Happy TBT. Nuff said. Ciao.
