Yesterday was haircut day. Leah and I had fun chatting. She told me all about the romantic engagement to Jordan a week or so ago at the coast. Sounded magical when he asked her to marry him (on knees with beautiful ring) and a rainbow appeared overhead! Wow. Sounds like Heaven was happy about that!
Then her BFF, Lisa Hannan, came in to visit. We are friends on FB but I had never met Mike's daughter-in-law. Pretty girl!!
Leah had been shopping earlier and saw a bottle of wine she thought I might like and gave it to me. It is Under The Tuscan Sun Sangiovese. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sangiovese
Funny, that movie Under The Tuscan Sun with Diane Lane is one of my favorite movies!!
So, then it was off to the post office and decided since it was National Pizza Pie Day I'd stop at Baci's in Rogue River and get a pizza...
I got an artichoke heart, green bell pepper, sun-dried tomato, and black olive pizza. YUMMMMM! I asked if the pizza crew knew it was National Pizza Pie Day and the owner (sorry, don't know his name) said I was the first one to recognize that so he gave me the pizza half price!!!! SO NICE. Thanks!
I came home, poured some yummy wine and had some super good pizza!!!! Thanks Leah! Thanks Baci's!
Historically this date...
I have one that was Jerry's... made in the early 1900's... that looks something like this:
Between 1900 and 1920, fire grenades resembling light bulbs could be purchased with a special bracket. This bracket had a spring device and a fusible link. When the fusible link melted, the spring would cause a metal arm to shatter the grenade and release its contents into the fire. Fire grenades of this era came in a metal case, such as the Shur Stop Kit that contained six grenades.
1962 – Captured American U2 spy-plane pilot Gary Powers is exchanged for capturedSoviet spy Rudolf Abel.

1930 – Robert Wagner, American actor
1961 – George Stephanopoulos, American political commentator

Umbrella Day is in honor of one of the world's most invaluable inventions. On a rainy, day, we are sure glad that someone was smart enough to invent it. It's also increasingly popular to use umbrellas to shade ourselves from harmful UV radiation, and the heat of the sun.
Umbrellas come in all sorts of sizes, colors, shapes, and, designs. Businesses and organizations use them for advertising. The smallest umbrellas fit inside a purse or glove compartment. Golf umbrellas are popular sizes. Then, there are lawn and beach umbrellas. There's one (or two) made just for you.
Celebrate Umbrella Day in a couple of ways. First, make sure your umbrella is handy. Second, use it, or walk around with it. If you don't have an umbrella, isn't it time to get one?
