It's been so hot here that there have been NO hummingbirds around, except for this morning... I saw ONE! Extreme heat and draught can kill hummingbirds. In this area we have Rufous Hummingbirds. They do not migrate and stay the winter. Our winters are very mild... with maybe snow a couple of times that lasts 2-3 days. Never had to chain up or shovel. So, I'm thinking the hummers have gone more towards the coast to get out of this heat.

Today is the 5th. I'll take the 5th and I'll take a 5th!
Let's see, what are my favorites.... these three:
Sinfire Cinnamon flavored whiskey

Citrus vodka

and... José !

Yesterday I used the taco seasoned rice for my breakfast...

I heated it up with a tad of olive oil and added in a couple eggs... 

pepper, garlic salt, and some butter flavored salt .... 

Noon yesterday when it was 99º.  A little later the clouds were all gone, movin' west.

This from Ed Chenal (LASD ret):
What a lazy day yesterday was. I did go through one of the boxes of old Christmas ornaments that had been my sister Marion's. Her daughter-in-law Melinda sent them to me. Some had been my Mother's ... at least they are very familiar ... and VERY old!

OK, this came from Deewayne-Honee Pberger (LASD ret) and it's HILARIOUS! I'm still laughing and I saw it yesterday!

Yesterday I hard-boiled some eggs and then mixed Opa Greek Yogurt Dill Feta dressing with half and balsamic mayo with the other half..

I recorded the Capitol 4th and Macy's 4th. I watched the last of the Tour de France. I watched the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest from NY. YUCK!!!! Gross. The guy who won hat 62 hot dogs and buns. The runner up ate 60! Made my tummy upset just watching. Watched two Hallmark movies. One was A Very Merry Mix-up. It was fun!   Watched the end of Macy's 4th. Sad, the camera angle for most of the fireworks was from way high and not ground level. Mistake.
Dinner was snacks...

I had some snapea crisps, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, a couple of the deviled eggs, gerkins I wrapped with a slice of Swiss cheese..... and wine.
All I know. Happy Sunday. Nuff said. Ciao.
