Brian's Step Van ~ Haggen Market ~ Errands ~ Tsarnaev & His Mother ~ Mushrooms Squash Eggs Swiss Cheese ~ Sonic Boom ~ ARMED FORCES DAY


Good 47º sparsely cloudy morning.
Yesterday's sunset was pretty.....




Yesterday was errand day... Went into Grants Pass to Brian's office. He just bought a 1962 Chevy Step-van. It was delivered from Arizona Thursday night about 11pm... it is soooooo COOL!!!

He will use it, once fixed up, painted with State Farm logos, as advertisement for his office. This will be a father and son project... with, I'm sure, Sami helping too!
Next a stop at the new Haggen Market, formerly Albertson's.

I was amazed at all the fun and good looking food there. Their deli with all the different salads made me drool....... 

And OMG the cheeses they had....and the pre-made hors de oeuvres! WOW. One refrigerated case, huge, had "breakfast" items, "lunch" items, and "dinner" items, all ready to re-heat and eat. They are making it too easy!
But, prices are high. Even my wine I normally buy at Safeway was $3 more. Had to get out of there before I bought goodies. They did have mandarin oranges that were all wrinkly. Never saw those before.

Produce gal said they were really good.
In the middle of the store there was this John Deere... awwww... just like my Darling's!!! (that Jon Harding, Wilsonite, bought from me)

Then to Safeway and to get my wine cheaper and some fresh veggies for dinner. Ace for cracked corn for the critters and
birds, vet's office for dog and cat meds, Woodville Rentals for uHaul boxes to ship the gun forms in, and home.
A good day when Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was condemned to death for the Boston bombing!!!

His mother,
condemned the guilty verdict
delivered by the jury in his federal death penalty trial on Wednesday, calling Americans “terrorists” and proclaiming her son's innocence.
(what a dumb shit!)
Tsarnaeva, who is of Avar origin and lives in Dagestan, wrote the text messages in both Russian and English, according to Vocativ, which obtained her phone number and verified her identity through dated selfies she provided.
“HOW CAN A MOTHER FEEL WHOSE SON IS IN THE CLAWS OF A PREDATOR PREPARING TO TEAR HIM TO PIECES LIKE MEAT???” she wrote. “THEY WILL PAY FOR MY SONS AND THE SONS OF ISLAM, PERMANENTLY!!! THE TEARS OF THEIR MOTHERS WILL BE FUEL FOR THEM IN HELL, AND ALSO THEIR BLOOD, I AM DOUBTLESS AND ETERNALLY GLAD THAT I KNOW THIS FROM THE WORDS OF THE CREATOR, NOT JUST ANYONE’S WORDS!!!!!!”
That beeeeeoootch better not try and come to this country!!!

Dinner was an omelette of sorts... eggs, mushrooms, yellow squash, baby spinach, butter, and Swiss cheese...

Sauteéd squash and mushrooms in butter and a little olive oil.... then added in spinach and let it wilt...


Next was the carton of eggs....

When eggs were done I removed from heat and added in the Swiss cheese to melt...

Dished it up and served with Safeway's cheese jalapeño bread. OMGOOOOOOOD!!!

About 5:45 Dave, the brush-hogger, was back to mow down more pasture grass....He was here til 9pm. He will be back today for the upper pastures.

May 16th
Armed Forces Day
THANK YOU to all of our military and those who previously served!!!!



When : Third Saturday in May
This is simply a day to salute sharply to all of the men and women in all branches of the service who protect our country and you. They can be called upon at a moment's notice to perform a risky and perilous mission for freedom and country. They train diligently both physically and mentally so they will be prepared to prevail in any mission they face.
Just how did it all begin? Well, each branch of the military had their own day of celebration. But, on August 31, 1949 then Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of Armed Forces Day. President Harry Truman also announced the holiday in a presidential proclamation on February 20, 1950. All branches of the military were asked to celebrate on this day and they complied on the first Armed Forces Day which was held the following year on May 20, 1950.
