Good 35º foggy cloudy morning. In the night it got down to 33º. There is ice on the barn roof.
Breakfast... cantaloupe, banana, cottage cheese. I know this sounds weird probably to most of you, but I like to drizzle on a little olive oil and add some salt and pepper. Really good!!!
Today's birthday is pal Dave Clark (LASD ret). HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!!! I hope you have a SUPER day!!!!

Speaking of plastic surgery among Hollyweird's elite...
Yesterday I took my truck to Roe Motors dealership for service. There is a problem and parts were ordered. It won't get fixed until Monday, so they gave me a car to drive in the meantime...
It's Cadiallac's first compact car.. it's an ATS. Nice, but I am so spoiled with my big truck.
After I left Roe I went to OSU (Oregon State University) Grants Pass campus on Ringuette St to drop off some donations. The Josephine County 4-H are collecting "Christmas Stockings for Soldiers". They want travel size items that can be carried in backpacks. The last day for donations drop off is the 28th. Their phone is (541) 476-6613. I had a box full of eye drops, lip balm, upset stomach relief tablets, boxes of large band aids, Brute dedorants and cologne, tooth brushes, dental floss, and toothpaste. I also donated to the mailing costs.
Back home and dinner... Omaha Steaks Cordon Bleu .....
I cooked it in the Power Air Fryer (http://www.powerairfryer.com/) ... drizzled with olive oil and cooked at 380º for 12 minutes on each side. It started out totally frozen. Came out PERFECT!
I tossed a corn on the cob in some boiling water with about 1/2 cup white vinegar. Removed from heat and let sit until dinner was ready. Again, PERFECT. No mushiness. Crispy corn. The vinegar is the trick. I put some of that garlic mayonnaise on it. OMGOOOOOOOD!!!!!
Last night's game...
Then it was Code Black. Love that show. Doctors and nurces at a hospital in Los Angeles. Starring Rob Lowe. A new fav of mine.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
