Clouds ~ Medford Errands ~ Kristen ~ Osprey Nest ~ Bruiser Box Inspector ~ Corn Chips

Good 42º cloudy morning.
Breakfast was plain low fat yogurt, tomatoes, sprinkled with bacon salt, and celery.

Yesterday the gloom lasted all day and we warmed to 63º by afternoon. No sun, like Adam the weatherman predicted. Supposed to stay cloudy and possibly rain again on Friday.  

I had a doc appointment in Medford. Did that and then a blood test. And then Costco. Got some great stuff.... and lobster tails on sale. Didn't get home until about 5pm and was exhausted. So happy when I got everything unloaded and it was "time for wine".
A text from Kristen re her latest scan .... the doc said the pain she was feeling was from scar tissue from the tube inserted between her ribs when they drained the lung. No fluid build up in the lung now. WHEW!!!!!!!
In Rogue River the power company will turn off the power to the downtown area on Friday night (some said about midnight) and remove an osprey nest. I had not ever noticed it before... so here it is... just after you come off the northbound off ramp, straight ahead.. see, just to the left of the billboard sign...

Apparently no osprey are nesting in it right now.
Historically this date
1863 – Arizona is organized as a United States territory.

My aunt was born in 1907 in Cananea Mexico when my grandfather was working down there. Later she could have said she was born in Arizona, since it was a Territory and they didn't start keeping birth records until 1912. But, she was honest and became a 'naturalized citizen' in later years, but did grow up in Arizona in Bisbee. My grandparents were still Scottish citizens, not American. He was a mining engineer for the Lavender Pitt copper mine.

1942 – The Battle of Los Angeles, one of the largest documented UFO sightings in history; the event lasted into the early hours of February 26, 1942. Interesting.

February 24th
National Corn Chip Day
Who knew there were this many kinds of Fritos:





Today is a holiday with a crunch. One might even suggest that it is a corny holiday. Well, that's okay because today is National Tortilla Chip Day. Just a few decades ago, Americans seldom ate Corn Chips and Salsa. It's popularity has grown immensely. Today is a tribute to that rising popularity of one of America's favorite munchies.
Did you know? The corn chip recipe was brought to the U.S. from Mexico by texas businessman Elmer Doolin. 
Celebrate National Tortilla Chip Day with a handful of crunchy, tasty corn chips and your favorite salsa or dip.

Bruiser is so funny! Just like a little kid who would rather play in the box rather than what's in it. :)

WOW Can you imagine having all those babies at once? Dad committed suicide? Maybe he just couldn't take the stress. Poor mom! I will go back and read about them.

Hurray for Kristen! I keep her in my prayers nightly.

XO Trisha

Thank you for the update on Kristen. So glad it was a happy note.

Interesting on the birth issue. We take for granted that everyone has always had accurate records.

Born on an Indian reservation in Arizona, Gerry's mom's only proof of citizenship her passport. Procured as an adult, it was a lengthy process to verify. When Gerry was born overseas, she thought he was not considered a natural-born citizen. But his career path proved that the US Government considers those born of citizens not on US soil, with certain specific exclusions, are.

I had grits for breakfast, so no corn chips for me today. Darn.
