Good 50º wispy cloudy morning...
Yesterday stayed clear and sunny and we hit 91º. Breezy and the weather guy kept saying a "chance" but not very good of rain maybe after the weekend. All the storms are moving north through Washington.
Yesterday morning after I was barely awake, Ted called from Evan's Pest Control. He was going to be here in 30 min to spray my berry bushes....
He got those all sprayed and even found some poison oak he sprayed. Didn't charge me for the spray, only the "house call" as he had sprayed them before but whatever he used, it was basically for the tar weed, didn't work, so he came back to do the job!
Breakfast yesterday... scrambled eggs with parsley and Parmesan cheese atop the tater tots I sauteéd with the mushrooms night before ... and some cottage cheese with sliced almonds...
Made a couple birthday cards and decided to take a run into town to get them mailed and pick up prescriptions.
This morning Jorge will be here early to finish up the barn painting....
Today would have been Karen Blair's birthday. She was born in 1964 and a member of our Jackson County Republican Women and Medford City Council member. Sadly she passed away this last June at the age of 50. She was a really neat gal and friend. RIP Karen, you are missed.

Dinner was reruns.
On TV was the season premier of Last Man Standing with Tim Allen. OMG, it was so funny. He starts off the first show of the season having been on a two month trip around the country for his store, Outdoor Man. Synopsis:
First Aired: Sep. 25, 2015 on ABC
Summary: Mike has returned from being on a fantastic two-month road trip traveling to far-flung places for Outdoor Man. It's great to be back with his wife, Vanessa, and their three daughters, but finds a lot has been going on at home as well as on the job since he's been away. To top it all off, a tornado is headed toward the Outdoor Man store and the Baxter home.
While he is filming himself prior to getting home he said how happy he will be to be back home in Colorado. He also said, "you know, that big square state that smells like pot!" Ohhhhhhh I was laughing. Actually he was born in Denver,Colorado and is a Republican who likes to slam left-wing and socialist agendas and OVamit! Yes! Since it is his show, he pretty much says what he thinks, except once he said OVamit was a communist and the NBC people made them take that line out! "Freedom of speech" HA!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
