UPS Dave was here with my new wireless keyboard and mouse for the new computer. I hope the computer comes soon!!! Later in the afternoon FedEx came with the computer monitor. One more part .....


Darrin from the pest control company came over about 2pm. He re-baited the ground squirrel traps. We were talking about the Dodgers, an employee of the pest company he works for used to be a Dodger catcher from '82-'87. I said I had always been a Dodger fan. His grandson is now and he asked Darrin who his favorite Dodger was. He told him Sandy Koufax. His grandson had no idea who that was!!! LOL.


Again it was so nice out on the porch... just enjoyed it... no clouds yesterday...





Later Dave came and finished the brush-hogging.

Dinner was reruns.

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

When the day starts with a picture of blueberry cheesecake- that is a GOOD omen.

Lady Bird had good taste in Westerns. Nice her legacy is wildflowers.

Thank you for the loan of clouds this week.

I cracked up at the fishing video. Too funny and what huge disappointments for some of those guys who lost their big catch.

Yum yum last night for my bunco gals I served strawberry cheesecake with whipped cream on top. It was a hit.
