Tom Selleck ~ Charged Cat ~ Marion ~ Del Albright ~ Salmon Salad ~ Macaroni Day



Good 58º whispy cloud morning....
 
We warmed to 84º yesterday. Overcast in the morning but by afternoon the clouds were dancing in the sky! I LOVE cloud formations!


And this morning... 
Look Vivia... my protein breakfast... chicken thigh, plain Greek yogurt, banana and blueberries. Oh, and a squirt of Laney Honey! (www.laneyhoney.com )

 
After being accused of stealing water for his 60 acre ranch, the truth comes out about Tom Selleck.

(He's always been such a favorite of mine. Good man, good family .. my sister knew them) and conservative in the far left liberal world of Hollyweird!)

However, after the district hired a private investigator to look into Selleck’s water usage, it has been confirmed that the “Magnum, P.I.” star paid for his water.
According to ABC News, it turns out that a construction company Selleck worked with actually paid a fee to secure the rights to draw water from the city hydrant two years ago, according to Jay Spurgin, public works director for Thousand Oaks.
The deal allows these companies to haul as much water as they want for special projects. They can then sell the water to a third party, as long as that party pays their monthly service charge and water bills.
It’s unclear whether Selleck purchased the water from that company or another source, but it is clear the “Blue Bloods” star did nothing illegal.
It was also reported that the water district spent nearly $22,000 for a private detective to investigate the seemingly slippery situation.
 
 
This funny came from Ike Saben (LASD ret) ... LOL!

Cat Fully Charged..................
 
Today is my sister Marion's birthday. (1934-2004) She is missed every day. She was my pal. We were very close. Of course the poor girl had to take me everywhere she went, being 9 years older than me. "Little Susan" was her shadow!

Marion graduated from Wilson High in 1952... Her class was the Adelphians. My class in 1963 was the Delphians! (I suggested the name and it was picked!)

She was visiting us and Kristen stopped by....
