Good 44º clear and sunny morning.
Boy howdy, stayed cold all day yesterday. Only in the 50ºs all morning and then a slow rise to the 60ºs. . Burrrrrrr..... Then warmed to the low 70ºs. Then got cold again and I turned on the heater!
Here is a short (minute and a half) of the highlights of the Boatnik Parade from Saturday.... Poleeece starting it off, followed by Marine Corps League and the flag, pipe band, motorcycles, school bands, etc....
Today is the Memorial Day ceremony with a flyover. Last year they said the budget from the air wing couldn't afford to send jets so they had some antique planes fly by.
I was sitting here at my desk having my morning cup of tea and Dude and the Bruise were watching out the door, for what I don't know, but they were next to each other.... odd.
Yesterday for breakfast I had a rerun of a former dinner... gnocchi with yams and mushrooms...
See, a lot of you ask what in the world do I do with all the food I cook... divide it up into zip bags and put in the freezer for a later meal. Dinner reruns are always good for breakfast!
Yesterday I cleaned out my spice cupboard and tossed out a BUNCH of old spices. Bag was HEAVY! Now the cupboard looks better and I can see what's in there!
Today is a special birthday... Suzanne Santisteven. She was a Deputy at Lakewood when I worked there. She married Phil, a Deputy also at Lakewood, had a baby girl, Alyssa, and quit the department to be a mom. Phil retired and they have a small ranch now in Idaho. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUZ!!!!!
