Forty eight years ago today (ugh.... has it really been that long????) I had a 'routine' doc appointment because I was pregnant. The doc said my baby was breech and a few other complications and I needed to have a caesarian delivery and to meet him at the hospital the next morning at 6am. WHAT??? TOMORAROW IS HALLOWEEN!!! sir, I'll be there.
I drove into Grants Pass yesterday and on the way ws this awesome rainbow over I-5...
Sorry, not as good as I'd like it to be, used little Nikon camera! Should have take the Canon!!! Then a couple errands... dropped off some egg cartons to Leah (she has chickens) and a jar of Miracle Whip to Kandy, had it and don't use it and her husband likes it! Then to the Kitchen Company to leave some things with her... my pickled tomatoes for her martini, Sports Illustrated for Mike's grandson, and a Rogue River Press for Mike.

Yesterday was the LE/Fire luncheon at the Grants Pass Golf Club.

Bought Dale a martini for his birthday (last month, 9-15). He likes his dry and up, I like mine dirty! (ps. had mine in a wine glass!) One of the LAPD guy's dad had just passed away. He was also LAPD, 44 years retired and 99 years old. We were all given a shot of whiskey to toast him.. RIP Frank Bushke! 

Lunch was buffet... I had mushroom chicken and gravy on rice, salad, cucumber and cooked carrots. Really good!!!

We had a great time talking about all of our favorite eating places in So. Cal...... Little Joe's, Shogun, King Taco, Lawry's, etc. Nice lunch. Nice folks. Good time.
Then to Safeway..... and home. Ahhhhh..... Warmed to 75º.
Dinner was a mug of Progresso Light Chicken Noodle Soup... Mmmmmm....

Chair, TV, wine, Patriots Football, and Blue Bloods!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

October 30th

National Candy Corn Day is today. Enjoy a handful of this sweet Fall treat. And, what perfect timing. National Candy Corn Day comes just a day before Halloween. That means you can eat plenty of it, before you go out Trick or Treating.
Candy corn is enjoyed all year long. Place it in a candy dish any time of the year, and watch it disappear by the handful. By far, the vast majority of candy corn is consumed during the Fall months, with both Halloween and Thanksgiving being the biggest times to eat it.
Candy corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger, and first manufactured by the Wunderle Candy Company. The Goelitz Candy company was the first to manufacture mass quantities around the turn of the century.
Candy corn consists primarily of corn syrup, honey, and sugar. There's lots of carbs(sugar), but it's fat free!?
Make this candy corn on the cob..
