Yesterday during the pouring rain I went into Grants Pass to get some Christmas stuff, a stop at the post office (stood in long line!), pharmacy for prescriptions. What was amazing, once I got into Rogue River the rain stopped! It didn't rain again until last night. Got my shopping done and all the items carried into the house and not a drop of rain! Yes!!! I wore my "what wine goes with dog hair" sweatshirt and got into lots of fun conversations with people in Safeway!
Dinner was reruns. Then a couple good phone chats with pals. Chair, TV, wine. Saw a program I had never seen before....   Small Town Big Deal.

So interesting the show last night, a German founded town, Frankenmuth, Minnisota where Bronners has their store and factory    and  Zenders where in their restaurant they serve up 1000 chickens a day!
In their on-line store they sell a number of their food products. The chicken seasoning sounds awesome and I want to get some!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

Merry Christmas! This morning is blustery. Loving it. The sounds. The smells. The moist air...

Lady Bird Johnson's spreading the beauty of wildflowers- I have a few packages here eager to have the rain awaken them. We cannot reap if we do not sow.

Blessings to you. Thank you for my morning wake-up reading.

You lucked out yesterday staying dry while you did your shopping and getting it all in the house.

Awwww my favorite singing group is the Bee Gees. Two of the brothers born on the same day and now they are gone and only one left. :(

Sounds like you are like my mother and me. I took after her and will chat with anyone and everyone. Never met a stranger. :) Why not because we are all in this together, right?

Love your cat on the rock and what it has to say. lol! That's what a mute button is for; when the pretender in chief speaks! :(
