Hill-Liary ~ Mike ~ Tarra & Bella ~ American Heroes ~ Jack Fimple


Good 51º hazy sunny morning. Yesterday stayed nice... breezy and clear. Today the smoke is coming back in big time! Took "5 Miles" for a run about 9:30 before it got warm. He needs and LOVES to run, but not in the heat and smoke!By 10am it was 69º.
 
Breakfast this morning was an Egg-Tastic cooked egg...fits perfectly on an English Muffin! Slathered on the creamy garlic sauce on a warmed sourdough muffin, added cheese, set the cooked egg on top, added lettuce.


    Perfect!
 
 
I love this sign on picture for AOL... it's Bruiser!

 
This is hilarious... sent from former neighbor/friend, Ellen Naugle Pantalone (Wilson S'62)...
Hillary, "How long am I going to be in here, Bill?"
Bill, "At this point, what difference does it make?"
 


Yesterday Mike Hannan was here to help with chores. He trimmed some dying bushes down by the gate
 picked up tree fall, cut down a dead tree, and fixed the loose aluminum roof on the tractor shed...
Then he went to Jennifer's and fixed her stove! Whatta guy.
 
Lunch yesterday was seaweed rice cakes with a slice of provolone and topped with guacamole, some herb tea, and blueberry scones. YUMMMM! Will get some more of that guacamole next trip to Costco. SOOOOOOO good!!!!

 
I had to share this youtube video... best friends, Tarra & Bella. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Shared from Linda Rohrbaaugh, pal of Jon Harting (Wilson S'64). Get the Kleenex out!

Three Americans stopped a gunman on a train from Amsterdam to Paris. They are heroes! Were presented with medals by the Mayor of Arras, France ... One was injured and is in the hospital. Out of the three, one is going to school in Sacramento, one former National Guard who served in Afghanistan from Roseburg Oregon, and one in the Air Force....
The above photo L-R Adam Sadler, senior at Sacramento State, Alek Skarlatos, National Guardsman from Roseburg, and the Mayor of Aaras. Spencer Stone, USAF, was hospitalized with non-life threatening wounds. Boy, did they save a bunch of lives!!!!!
 
Dinner was leftovers and an ear of corn slathered with creamy garlic sauce ... oink! Then the rest of the Hallmark movie, A Crush On You. Good movie!
 
After Mike finished his "chores" we sat and talked for a bit. During that time I received a call from All Natural Pest Control... it was my favorite Dodger, Jack Fimple~! He retired from baseball, being a catcher for the Dodgers, and moved to Orygun and works for All Natural. He made my day, saying he reads and likes my blog! Whoooooooo hooooooo! Love you Jack! As I told him in my best East LA accent.... "I lo da Daw-yers" !!! LOL. He laughed and said he hadn't heard that in years! He called me about renewing my contract.

August 22nd
National Spumoni Day
SPUMONIA Neapolitan specialty, with layers of three different colored and flavored ice cream: Chocolate, pistachio and cherry are a popular combination. Other flavors can be used, with nuts and candied fruit added to the layers. Originally, in the days before ice cream, spumoni was sherbet blended with a large amount of Italian meringue (cooked, beaten egg white sweetened with hot sugar syrup); the name comes from the Italian word for for foam, spuma. While this photo shows four flavors (cherry vanilla, chocolate and pistachio ice creams, plus raspberry sorbet) in a fancy design, you can make a spumoni terrine by layering chocolate, pistachio and cherry ice cream (3 cups each):

Line a large loafpan with overlapping pieces of plastic wrap, leaving an overhang on all sides. Soften the ice cream one flavor at a time, until it can be spread in the pan. Cover pan with plastic wrap and freeze about 30 minutes; repeat with the other two flavors. In-between layers, you can add candied fruit, maraschino cherries and/or chopped pistachio nuts.  Return to freezer until ready to use; slice and serve.
