Pretty Sunrise ~ TV/Errands ~ Green Wine ~ Nancy/Jennifer/Mike ~ Alabama Preacher ~ Crowded


Good  37º somewhat cloudy morning. Going to be cloudy/sunny today. A glorious 78º yesterday!!!
 

 
Yesterday the DirecTV guy, Bobby, showed up right on time and fixed the problems! YEAH!!! Then it was time to start today's blog and catch up on emails. The sun finally started coming out after 1oam. I turned on the NY St. Pat's Day parade and recorded it for later.
 
I ran a couple errands... post office for a package, Ace to wish all Happy St. Paddy's Day. Said to Big Dan, "Erin go bragh". He said, "I don't wear a bra!" Obviously he's NOT Irish!!! (It means Ireland Forever.)
 
 
Later I met up with Nancy, Jennifer, and Mike at Taprock for some "green wine" in the afternoon. Sat on the deck over looking the Rogue River and enjoyed the warm day!!!




(Nancy wouldn't let me take her picture~) and the fare was corned beef tacos... Mike and Jennifer ate and I brought mine home for dinner...  So yummy!!!

 
Today my corned beef goes in the Crock*Pot along with leeks, carrots, and Guinness beer. Cabbage goes in last 2 hours and will boil and mash some potatoes to make Colcannon.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colcannon

This from my pal Patty. LOL:
Alabama Preacher
-------------------------

An Alabama preacher said to his congregation, "Someone in this congregation has spread a rumor that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan.

This is a horrible lie and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate.

I am embarrassed and do not intend to accept this. Now, I want the party who did this to stand and ask forgiveness From God, and this Christian Family."

No one moved.

The preacher continued, "Do you have the nerve to face me and admit this is a falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel glory. Now stand and confess your transgression."

Again all was quiet.

Then slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde with a body that would stop traffic rose from the third pew. Her head was bowed and her voice quivered as she spoke, "Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding.

I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets."

The preacher fell to his knees, his wife fainted, and the congregation roared!

My sister, Marion, knew Peter. He had a house at Tahoe and her real estate office rented it out for him. He told Marion lots of Hollywood stories, especially ones about Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, with whom Peter socialized. The stories were always whoppers!

****************************************************
There is a new show in TV called Crowded... It stars Patrick Warburton
(played in Rules of Engagement) 








and Stacy Keach
(plays Warburton's dad) and Celeste somebody (who is Keach's new wife)  

Keach's character bolsters about how "progressive" he is because his wife is black, while admitting he missed Richard Nixon! WHAAAAAAAAAA?????????
I watched the first episode. TRASH! STUPID! STUPID! STUPID! A total waste of time. Cannot imagine what the writer (wrote Hot In Cleveland) thinking! If you think you can handle utter stupidity then watch it and let me know your opinion.

Later I kicked back in my chair in the living room and had wine and watched Blue Bloods. Nice to be back to normal.
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

Happy normal day. Having Alabama preacher in the family history- the joke scared me- which made the punch-line even funnier.

I found a restaurant in Connecticut which serves corned beef pizza. Tacos makes even better sense.

Yep, the tacos were good and served with white re-fried beans. xo

LOL I must have heard the preacher joke before because I knew what was coming. It was hilarious! :)

I was a fan of Rules of Engagement. I likes Warburton's character on there. Miss that show. He is also the spokesman for National Rent a Car. "Choose any car and GO". :) I like his looks and his voice is yummy too.

Stacey Keach has played some comical parts. He was on Two and a Half Men. Played a racist type who eventually left his wife for an old Navy buddy, played by a black actor, John Amos. They both turned gay and moved in together. Keach was Charlie's fiance's dad.

Your St. P. outfit was adorable! Bet you got lots of comments around town!

XO Trisha
