Snow ~ Sunday Football ~ If We Had An Italian President from New Jersey ~ Dio Benedica Vino ~ Shit Creek ~ Pots-A-La-Gu

Good 32º it snowed again morning! Got more this time than last. No snow in Ashland, Medford, or Grants Pass.... just here in Rogue River!

From being 19º yesterday morning it will be warming up a bit!
Took forever for it to warm up yesterday. Whine whine whine... 50º by 1pm. Even Dude and the Bruise were unhappy being in the cold and as soon as they went out they turned right around and came back in! Good thing they employ me as the door monitor! The sunset last night was beautiful!

Mopping was the event of the day. Zowie! Filled the bird feeders.
Today's football...

I received this short video, 1 minute 30 seconds, from my pal Patty Kuehl... "If we had an Italian President from Jersey". HILARIOUS. You NY/NJ folks will love this. If you are Italian, even better!

Speaking of Italians, I finally opened that bottle of Italian wine...
Loved it!!!! Mi è piaciuto. Dio benedica vino. Andando a comprare di più.

I got this from Dale Yellin (LASD SEB SR Motors ret) yesterday. Now you know it exists, get your paddle out and keep it with you! This is near Harrisburg PA..............

Dinner was sautéed veggies, then added in leftover turkey, and some spinach. Mixed well, heated through and then added in turkey gravy... Otherwise known to my kids for years as "pots-a-la-gu" .....

Pots-a-la-gu to the kids was just a combination of any leftover meat, leftover veggies, pasta of any kind,  and a can of cream soup. They begged for it!!! LOL.

Last night was a chat with pals, chair with electric blanket, fire in the wood stove, wine, and Chicago Med and Blue Bloods.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
