Errands ~ Sandy Beck ~ Terry Polly ~ Robert Klamm ~ Drink Beer Day

Good 50º clear sunny morning. Only hit 94º yesterday, which was 11º cooler than Monday!

Yesterday I left and went to the fire station to pay my fire/med fee and the Mercy Flights fee. Had a fun chat about guns with one of the firemen, Jim. The gal at the desk, Vicky, remembered my accidental discharge/GSW to my hand back in August of 2006... LOL, this was on my birthday that year..

Then to Safeway for groceries. They had the canned dog food, I feed Dude in the evening, on sale, so I stocked up. CHORE unloading the car when I got home. 

Today is a special birthday, pal since 9th grade, Sandy (Todoran) Beck. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANDY!!! Miss and love you girlfriend! I hope you have a spectacular birthday!! You FINALLY caught up to me!!! xo

Cute photo with your bandaged hand. I have a shirt just like that. :)

I hate unloading the groceries from the car but I try to time it when John and/or Matthew are home to help me. Then putting it away! :(

We have plenty of beer but I think it gives me a headache so I'll stick with Chardonnay! :)

XO Trisha

Happy birthday Confucius- Thank you for this quote.

"In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of."

Even though Lutherans (the church having been born in Germany) are rumoured to be seeking a communal wine which tastes like beer- to me beer is a drink best saved for a hot day, served while playing beach volleyball. Or fed to the lawn. Lawns love beer.
