Sick ~ My Babies With Paws ~ Forsythes ~ Reardons ~ Elliott ~ Chickee ~ Sal

Good 56ยบ cloudy got some drizzles last night, as the grass is wet...

Yesterday started out with just a slight feeling of getting a cold. Some sneezing and coughing. It increasingly got worse. The coughing and sneezing became monumental! Then the chills started in. No fever though. Next, stomach started hurting. Had that famous Mexican thingy.... Monty's Revenge! Was miserable. Took my Sunrider herb drinks, Zicam, Ibuprofen, ate about 1/2 cup plain yogurt, and drank a cup of warm low sodium chicken stock. Mostly sat in my chair all day. Am feeling better today, but will take another 'day off' and rest. Took Zyrtec before bed and slept pretty well. Was to meet up with the "girls" (Dee, Kathy, & Jeannie) for a glass of wine this afternoon, but still don't know what I have or if contagious. Another day ladies....
The Dude and the Bruise stayed close...

About 2pm yesterday I saw what I thought was a turkey vulture flying by. Got my camera and sure enough............

Of course he was pretty much gone by the time I took a couple pictures and didn't even know I had captured him... can just barely see him in this pano...

Anniversaries today include Wilsonite Kathy (O'Brien) and Don Forsythe...



And LASD ret. Pat Reardon and his love Alice are celebrating anniversary #36. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids! Here they are when they stopped by this month for a visit....
They called from their new place in Idaho in the afternoon. Had been there changing locks, etc. Will be moving soon. Heading back to Washington state today for more packing and planning.

And our own Sal Esquivel, Oregon State Rep.. Republican...Medford. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAL!
Here is Sal working hard, as usual, with his wife Jan (our JCRW past pres.)

Historically this date...

1536 – Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII of England, is beheaded for adultery,treason, and incest.

1921 – The U.S. Congress passes the Emergency Quota Act establishing national quotas on immigration. much good does that do? we're still giving perks, social security, and tax relief to illegals! Grrrrrrrrrrrr
1950 – A barge containing munitions destined for Pakistan explodes in the harbor atSouth Amboy, New Jersey, devastating the city.
1962 – A birthday salute to U.S. President John F. Kennedy takes place at Madison Square GardenNew York City. The highlight is Marilyn Monroe's rendition of "Happy Birthday".
1986 – The Firearm Owners Protection Act is signed into law by U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
**** One of the law's provisions was that persons traveling from one place to another cannot be incarcerated for a firearms offense in a state that has strict gun control laws if the traveler is just passing through (short stops for food and gas) and the firearms and ammunition are not immediately accessible, unloaded and, in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver’s compartment, in a locked container.
An example of this would be that someone driving from Virginia to a competition inVermont with a locked hard case containing an unloaded handgun and a box ofammunition in the trunk could not be prosecuted in New Jersey or New York City for illegal possession of a handgun provided that they did not stop in New Jersey or New York for an extended period of time.
However Washington D.C.New YorkNew Jersey, and several other states routinely ignore this provision; arresting, prosecuting, and imprisoning travelers who are complying with this federal law

And births this date include...
1925 – Malcolm X, American civil rights activist (d. 1965)
1935 – David Hartman, American actor and television personality
1939 – Francis Richard 'Dick' Scobee, American astronaut (d. 1986)
1949 – Archie Manning, American football player
.... father of Peyton and the arrogant Eli!

1959 – Nicole Brown Simpson, American murder victim (d. 1994)
1973 – Dario Franchitti, Scottish race car driver
No dinner last night. Watching TV was a chore. An evening with no wine!

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