Something I strongly believe in:

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.” -Audrey Hepburn
Today would have been Jerry's mom's birthday... Winona Maxwell 1923-2012. Today is Aaron and Marie's 4th wedding anniversary. Here they are with Winona:   ♥

Here is a short Smilebox of the crazy geese that come visit here every year. Mr. Gander and Mrs. Goose are ready to lay eggs and raise another family. They come and enjoy the treats (cracked corn) I give them. I call them, "Here goosie goose... and they waddle over. Here is a series of photos of Gander getting angry at another Gander! Then he and the Mrs. made up!

This video is short but very strong. It involves rescue of an older adult dog from a water treatment facility. You will need your Kleenex!

Yesterday I met up with Jennifer, Hilomi, Micol, Chris, and Kate at Gtano's. I had the shrimp with pineapple/onions/green peppers and melon and jicama and rice with corn.... and of course we had the table made guacamolĂ© by MaryLou.

Lilly and Juan Carlos are the owners. Juan Carlos is the BEST cook ever of Latin Cuisine! 

And Hilome... thank you for the beautiful flowers!!! Sweet of you!!! xo

I forgot to tell you about the interesting meeting I had on Thursday. I was home and relaxing with the TV when Dude went berserk barking. I looked out and here comes a pickup truck up my drive with California plates. The passenger was a blonde lady, whom at first I thought was my friend Ann Ramirez. Not. This lady got out and said her sister used to own this house. Her sister and husband were the ones we bought it from. Cindy and her husband Don were up here visiting her sis in Grants Pass. We chatted. I invited them in, but they said no, but she did take a picture of the house. Really nice people. Her sister worked at the desk for the Rogue River Police. Jerry and the husband had a good time getting to know each other... drinking Jack Daniels on the front porch! So along comes another bid on the house, higher than ours, but the Reitz's said they wanted to sell to us! Anyway, interesting. Cindy's husband was worried when he saw my signs ....

Cindy told him, "Don't worry, Oregonians are nice people!"
Ok, nuff said. Happy Valentines Happy Saturday. Ciao.
