Cold & Rain ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Cathy's New Pups ~ Why People Move To Florida ~ Eagle Eye Surgery ~ Joe Kirk

Good 41º foggy morning.
Stayed cold all day yesterday.. never got out of the 40º. I think we hit a high of 44.5º Then at 2pm we got rain. Imagine. Ended up with 1/8".
Throw Back Thursday.... Brian "golfing" the acorns 1973:

My pal Cathy just got her three new pug puppies, Binky.. Blue.. and Bear. She got them from back east. Her love dog was Bumbles, a pug she had for 13 years, and wanted another pug after she passed away last year. These three all came together. They were flown out to Ca and they were exhausted from the travel. Here they are when first arrived... and then in their snuggy bed!

Happy puppies. Will have a GREAT home with Cathy!

Ok, this is toooooo funny, well, except for a couple instances.... 1. the stupid idiot and the swimming pool ... and 2. the bull trying to mate. Thanks Derry Benedict (LASD ret) for sharing this. I was howling with laughter... And Gator, this is why people move to Florida!

Thank A Mailman Day

Thank a Mailman Day is your chance to say thanks to the guy, or gal, who delivers your mail. After all, they are there six days a week. The reliable postal worker is always there doing their job, regardless of the weather. They are a hardy lot. You'll find some mail carriers on walking routes, wearing shorts in all but the coldest of winter days.
Did you Know? Pony Express riders were the most famous early American "mailmen". Their motto was " Neither rain, nor snow, nor death of the night, can keep us from our duty". This motto is believed to be taken in part from a motto dating back to ancient times. Among the most popular variation is "Through rain or snow, or sleet or hail, we'll carry the mail. We will not fail".
Make it a point to catch your mail carrier enroute today. Give him or her a great big smile and a great big "TY".  If you happen to visit your local post office, give them a thank you, too.

Oh my those cars and bus lucked out that they didn't crash with another vehicle. Like those folks who were falling, that happened to me. When Kevin and I were in DC for GW's Inauguration we were on a congressional tour of the Congressional Library. It started snowing while we were inside. When we came out and we were walking down the drive, my feet went out from under me and down I went. It was icy and doofus me wasn't wearing my snow boots. I wore my fancy high purple leather ones which was a mistake. Thankfully my thick fox coat saved my rear end.

Adorable photo of Brian with the golf club.

Daryl loves pugs and would love to have one of this three. Adorable.

Yes, T, good thing you were wearing a thick coat!! OUCH. oxox

Lydia said...

LOL- That thick fox coat of Trisha's- we had to hide her behind trees when we hailed a taxi because the fares negotiated were less than if the cab driver's saw that coat before quoting a price):-

I wore my blue cowboy boots- at George Washington's garden is when I found out how cold leather can turn. Made me feel for those revolutionary fighters in bitter east coast winters. But they did get us invited to Ron Paul's party. One of his staffers figured anyone wearing those had to be from Texas.

Met Clint Black once. He and his family were at the same salon. Terrific people. Polite and happy. Glad for their good fortune. Nice to be around.

I have never ridden in cabs, so am surprised they would raise or lower their fare depending on what they perceived of the riders. Yes, Clint Black does seem like a nice person! Thanks L. xo
