Good cloudy 36º morning.
HEY! One month til Christmas!
Yesterday stayed pretty cool. Warmed to 45º. At 10am there was snow on my mountain!
Never did come down here.
Travel over the Siskiyou Summit south on I-5 is not somewhere I'd want to be today.....
I finally got out and went to Grants Pass (Grass Pants) yesterday. Raining here, but that was OK, and not raining in GP. Stopped to drop some stuff at Brian's office. Then to The Kitchen Company to pick up a 'treat' Jennifer made for me. Then shopping at Safeway. As Nancy says, I have a parking lot angel watching over me. I generally get a spot in front wherever I go. Yesterday was no exception. With all the people shopping.... parking spot right in front of the doors! Pretty day... heading back home:
For those of you who don't...
(In the very beginning of this Eagles video, they were awesome!, there is a gal taking a toke off a joint!) I want to go to Winslow and take my picture on the corner!

National Parfait Day
A parfait consists of layers of ice cream, whipped cream, and any combination of syrups and fruits. Yes, it's basically a fancy word for a sundae. And, it's usually served in a fancy glass.
Celebrate this day by eating Parfaits. While chocolate is by far the favorite, use your imagination to create a wide range of single and mixed flavors.
Savor your favorite flavor of parfait, as you enjoy National Parfait Day.
