Good 61º some clouds and smokey (duh) morning.
Yesterday morning was beautiful... clear sky, clouds. No smoke!
By 2pm the valley was so filled with smoke you couldn't even see my mountain! It gagged you to go outside! Bruiser stayed in! As I said before, unusual for him.
The prediction is for a "chance" of rain today/tonight/Saturday. There is a bit of radar. Praying for the rain!
After I finish my blog in the morning it's time to feed Bruiser and Dude. After they eat Dude wants to go out and visit the trees in the back. Bruiser waited patiently for his return in the bed of my golf cart!
Yesterday for breakfast I had a chicken thigh, shook on a little garlic salt, some lettuce and tomatoes with ranch dressing, topped with 2 scrambled eggs... mixed with sriracha mayo and cooked for 1 minute 10 seconds in Egg-Tastic.... (www.eggtastic.com)
I said something to Dude about UPS coming today and maybe his 'dad' will be the driver. So, Dude goes out and keeps an eye on the gate!
OH LOOK! It's dad!
Dude got 3 dog cookies from his 'dad' Dave and I got my movies and magnesium!
LOL I want one of these!

This is hilarious. Found a number of these "bad lip reading" with the NFL on youtube. (Hi my Tommy!)
When I was at the post office the other day, Cindy gave me this:
Interesting! Small too... only 1¾" x 5".
I ordered some new 'scuffs' yesterday from LLBean. Love their indoor/outdoor sole. These are cute... dog and cat!
OMG, this is histerical.. a man spends hours installing a cat door. The cat is unimpressed. 40 second video:
Dinner was Smoked Salmon Chowder:
Chowder made by Ivars: http://www.ivarschowder.com/ I got it at Rays in RR in the meat department. REALLY good!!!!! Go to their site and click on "where to buy" and it lists markets in all the western states. (Even at Costco in Illinios, Greg!)
Then chair, wine, and a Hallmark movie! Well, NOT. I can't get my DVR to work! DANG. What a pain. I tried everything. Maybe I need a new one. So, I watched Blue Bloods. Sigh....................
I looked out about 8pm and the moon was BIG and bright hiding back behind all that smoke:
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

Race Your Mouse Day is today.
So, rev up your mouse, and let the race begin.
But, wait a second... what kind of mouse are we talking about? Is it the computer mouse, and we're supposed to race it around the mouse pad?
Well, the folks at Wellcat.com, who created this day, want you to race your mouse around the icons on your screen. They suggest you do so while waiting for "whatever it is you're waiting for to come up on the screen".
Let the race begin............Happy Race Your Mouse Day!!
