Computer & Errands ~ Geese ~ Whipped Cream ~ Hollyweird ~ John Bowler ~ Uptown Bar & Grill w/ Donna & Jeannie ~ Siblings Day

Good 68º afternoon.
Went to see Turk and picked up my computer this morning. He is a genius. Several things wrong and he fixed them! So glad to have "Hal" back!
Then to the store for cards and post office to mail them. Market for a few groceries. They had a whole, seasoned, chicken for $5.57. Couldn't pass that up. In the Crock*Pot it will go tomorrow. Yummmm... and I have a bunch of veggies to go with.
Home and unloaded the car. On my way up our road I see Bruiser running and jumping into the woodpile at my neighbors, Frank & Cindy's,  outside my gate. I pulled up and called him. He came running and followed me to the house. Now sound asleep!

Yesterday was about dogs... here's a cute one from my pal Erika:

The geese were calling me yesterday, so I went out and gave them some cracked corn. While I was waiting for Dude to come back from his 'morning duty' the gander chased off another goose. They are very protective. Then the female was done eating and started to leave as the gander returned. Got them on a video! Noisy too!
This is pretty good.... making whipped cream in a jar and getting a workout at the same time...
Here's a funny story out of Hollyweird... You know how the Kardashians (gag gag gag .... humongous posteriors! selfie addicted!)
Today is a special guy's birthday... John Bowler, ret. Lt. LASD, worked with him at ELA... and the hubby of my dear daily drivel friend Trisha! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN! GREAT seeing you in Laughlin at the Roundup!

... and with his new little grandson Christian...

Yesterday, after I took 'Hal' (my computer) to Turk. Had a problem with the photo cards and they wouldn't work. Dropped it off and headed up the hill to Julie's Uptown Bar and Grill to meet Jeannie and Donna for lunch.
Donna and Jeannie... Donna is looking GREAT. She had stomach cancer and most all of her stomach removed. Now on chemo. She's really doing good. So nice to see her!
Jeannie and Donna split an 'over the top with cheese' grilled cheese sandwich.
I had the artichoke dip. OMGOOOOOOD!!!

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