Mo' Rain ~ Jeff Heaton ~ 20 Most Dangerous Cities ~ Bruiser ~ No Soliciting ~ Ann & Gabe ~ Mike ~ Monday Football ~ Birds ~ Buck ~ Sandwich History

Good 43º cloudy morning.
Yesterday with not even a "chance" of rain predicted... at 12:30 it was pouring!

I sent the above photos to KOBI 5 News for the weather department and joked they said "no rain" for the next week... I got a personal email from Weatherman Jeff Heaton, saying he had forecast the rain in the 7am news. Sorry Jeff, I didn't see the early news, only the night before. Thanks for the note though!! All the people on the Ch 5 News are my favs!!! And Jeff, I promise I will watch your early news from now on!
I just loved the look of the clouds... By afternoon we warmed up to 62º and we had received another 1/4" of that precious wet stuff!

And then 1/2 an hour later there was some blue sky!

Thanks George Bachmeier (LASD ret) for these. Whodda thought on some of them!

Yesterday, Monday, pay bills day. GROAN...
Goofy Bruise decided to nap on top of the printer... there was a magazine on the other one and he put his head on it and slept like a rock!
Then he got a little more comfortable....

..wonder why "comedians" named Roseanne or Rosie are such vulgar pieces of work?
She is now an "organic macadamia nut farmer" in Hawaii. More like an "organic nut" herself!

This was sent by Pat Kelly, Greece traveling pal... I changed it to fit me! (It did say "beer")

Special friends, Ann and Gabe Ramirez (LASD both ret) are celebrating their 25th anniversary today. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY kids!! You both look GREAT!

And email pal, Mike Cipolla is celebrating his birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE!!!! (with his bride, Nan)

I generally buy Real Lemon juice at Costco, but was running low so I got some of the First Street lemon juice at Safeway. DON'T buy it. It is TERRIBLE and even had brown sediment. UGH. I poured it down the drain.

Later it was martini time again ..... football.....  

Lots going on in the football world.... Titans have fired their head coach and Kaepernick, SF 49ers quarterback, has been benched... maybe permanently!
Dinner was some salmon (I think it came from Patty & Cliff.....found it in the freezer) and an avocado my sister Betty sent me, and some stir fried/steamed veggies...

Out on the porch the LBBs (little brown birdies) were preparing their 'house' for winter....

And Mr. Buck was eating leaves off the apple tree.....

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

November 3rd
National Sandwich Day

The club sandwich was invented in London, but classic American sandwiches include cream cheese (cream cheese was invented in Philadelphia), the cheese steak, the hamburger, the peanut butter (an American invention: PB & jelly) sandwich, sloppy joe, and the American-born mega sandwich... the submarine aka hoagie, grinder, etc. The sandwich was first popularized in Europe, it is America that has taken it to heart embracing it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and creating as many types of sandwiches as there are ingredients.
